______________________________
HENRY LEE (Trad. / Nick Cave) ______________________________
la- Get down, get down, little Henry Lee re- And stay all night with me You won't find a girl in this damn world la- That will compare with me sol And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
Chorus
do La la la la la la- La la la la lee
re- la- A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
I can't get down and I won't get down And stay all night with thee For the girl I have in that merry green land I love far better than thee And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
Chorus
She leaned herself against a fence Just for a kiss or two And with a little pen-knife held in her hand She plugged him through and through And the wind did roar and the wind did moan
Chorus
Come take him by his lilly-white hands Come take him by his feet And throw him in this deep deep well Which is more than one hundred feet And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
Chorus
Lie there, lie there, little Henry Lee 'Till the flesh drops from your bones For the girl you have in that merry green land Can wait forever for you to come home And the wind did howl and the wind did moan
Chorus
