    Lyrics

    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
