Song “10000 Maniacs: Greenwood Sidey Lyrics” from 10000 Maniacs Lyrics album:


There was a lady lived in York – all the lee and loney
Fell in love with her father’s clerk – down by the greenwood sidey-o

She loved him up, she loved him down – all the lee and loney
Loved him ’til he filled her arms – down by the greenwood sidey-o

She leant her back against an oak – all the lee and loney
First it bent and then it broke – down by the greenwood sidey-o

She leant her back against a thorn – all the lee and loney
There she had two fine babes born – down by the greenwood sidey-o

She took out her reaping knife – all the lee and loney
There she took those sweet babes’ lives – down by the greenwood sidey-o

She wiped the blade against her shoe – all the lee and loney
The more she rubbed, the redder it grew – down by the greenwood sidey-o

She went back to her father’s hall – all the lee and loney
Saw two babes a-playing at ball – down by the greenwood sidey-o

‘Oh babes oh babes if you were mine’ – all the lee and loney
‘I’d dress you up in scarlet fine’ – down by the greenwood sidey-o

‘Oh Mother oh Mother if we were yours’ – all the lee and loney
‘Scarlet was our own hearts’ blood’ – down by the greenwood sidey-o

‘Oh babes oh babes it’s Heaven for you’ – all the lee and loney
‘Oh Mother oh Mother it’s Hell for you’ – down by the greenwood sidey-o
