Subject: Lyr Add: GEORGIE (from Peter Bellamy)
From: Roberto
Date: 11 Mar 04 - 05:33 AM

Please, someome to check and correct my transcription of Peter Bellamy singing Georgie. Is is from his LP "Mainly Norfolk". The model is Harry Cox's version, but the words are here and there slightly different, and I am not sure I've got them all right. Thank you. Roberto


As I walked over London Bridge
One misty morning early
There I overheard some fair lady
Lamenting for her Georgie

O pray, can you send me some little boy
Who can go an errand quickly
Who can go ten mile in one hour
With an errand for a lady

Come saddle to me my best black horse
Come saddle him right quickly
That I may ride to the king's castle gaol
With an errand for a lady

An when she had come to the king's castle door
The prisoners aye stood many
And they all stood with their hats in their hands
Excepting her bonny bonny Georgie

Oh Georgie never stole no cow nor horse
He never murdered any
But he stole sixteen of the king's fat deers
Which grieved me most of any

And six pretty babies I've had to him
The seventh lies in my bosom
I would freely part with them everyone
For to save the life of me Georgie

And the judge he looked over his left shoulder
He seemed so very hard hearted
Saying – Pretty fair lady you've come too late
For you Georgie's condemned already

Oh, me Georgie will be hanged in the chains of gold
Such gold as never hangs many
Because he come of the royal blood
And he courted a very rich lady

Oh, me Georgie will be hanged in the chains of gold
Such gold as there isn't much of any
And on his grave these words will be wrote -
Here lies the heart of a lady
