Hi all,

Great resource!

I managed to dig a song out of my memory based on snatches of lyrics. This is a really great long ballad, I wish I knew which artist recorded the version I know. In any case, looking for... words and chords!

thanks,
Galen

Run a search via the excellent search engine on the main Forum page for tyne of harrow. That will get you a good bit of material from previous discussions here on the subject, though I don't recall if there are suggested "chords" in any of them. Note that contracted forms like "o'" are less likely to get results via search engines, as they are not used consistently.

John Faulkner recorded a fine version of this ballad in the 80s...

Peace

See previous threads as recommended. I think it's all been said at least once; no need to repeat ourselves.

Duncan Cameron does a great version of this song. I don't know chords, but the lyrics I know are:

ALLAN TYNE OF HARROW

I am a bold young highwayman
Me name is Tyne of Harrow
I come from poor but honest folk
Near to the hills of Yarrow
But getting of a maid with child
For England I sailed over
I left me parents and became
A wild and daring rover

Straight to London I did go
Where I became a soldier
Resolved to fight Brittania's foes
No sergeant-at-arms was bolder
They shipped me to a foreign shore,
Where cannons loud did rattle
Believe me boys, I do not boast
How I behaved in battle

Many's the battle I fought in
In Holland and French Flanders
I always fought with a courage keen
Brought on by brave commanders
But a cruel ensign called me out
And I was flogged and carted
Cruel the usage that I got
And so I soon deserted

Straight to England I set sail
As fast as wind could heave me
Resolved of my liberty
That no one could deprive me
I slept into the woods by night
By all my friends forsaken
I dared not walk the roads by day
For fear I would be taken

But being of a courage keen
And likewise able-bodied
I robbed Lord Lownes on the King's highway
With pistols heavy-loaded
I clapped the pistols to his breast
Which set his heart a-quiver
Five hundred pounds in ready gold
To me he did deliver

With part of my new store of wealth
I bought a famous gelding
That over a five-bar gate could jump
I bought him from Ned Fielding
Lord Arkenstone unto his coat
I robbed at Covent Garden
And two hours later, that same night
I robbed the Earl of Warren

One night I robbed at Turnham Green
The revenue collector
And what I got I gave it to
A widow, to protect her
I always robbed the rich and great
To rob the poor I scorned
And now in iron chains I'm bound
In doom I now lie borned

And now at Newgate I'm confined
And by the laws convicted
To hang on Tyburn tree's my fate
At which I'm much a-frighted
Farewell, me friends and countrymen
And me native hills of Yarrow
Kind Providence will test the soul
Of Allan Tyne of Harrow

"Of course the original is "Valentine O'Hara" "
Sorry George, - Valentine O'Hara is two lines only to be found in Joyce's 'Old Irish Folk Music and Songs'
Frank Harte took MacColl's Allan Tyne of Harrow and popularised it in Ireland - that is the basis of the song that is being sung today.
