Seven Hundred Elves  Steeleye Span

Capo 1
Chorus x 1
[G]Seven hundred [D]elves from [A]out the [Em]wood
[G]Foul and [D]grim they [A]were[Em]
[G]Down to the [D]farmer's [A]house they [Em]went
His [G]meat and [D]drink to [A]share[Em]
There [G]was a [D]farmer [A]in the [Em]west and [G]there he [D]chose his [A]ground[Em]
He [G]thought to [D]spend the [A]winter [Em]there and [G]brought his [D]hawk and [A]hound[Em]
He [G]brought with [D]him both [A]hound and [Em]cock [G]alone he [D]begged to [A]stay[Em]
And [G]all the [D]deer that [A]roamed the [Em]wood had [G]cause to [D]rue the [A]day[Em]
He [G]felled the [D]oak, he [A]felled the [Em]birch, the [G]beech nor [D]poplar [A]spared[Em]
And [G]much was [D]grieved the [A]sullen [Em]elves at [G]what the [D]stranger [A]dared[Em]
He [G]hewed him [D]baulks and he [A]hewed him [Em]beams with [G]eager [D]toil and [A]haste[Em]
Then [G]up and [D]spake the [A]woodland [Em]elves: ``Who's [G]come our [D]wood to [A]waste?[Em]?'
Chorus x 2
U[G]p and [D]spake the [A]biggest [Em]elf and [G]grimly [D]rolled his [A]eyes[Em]:
"We'll [G]march [D]upon the [A]farmer's [Em]house and [G]hold on [D]him [A]assize[Em]
He's [G]knocking [D]down both [A]wood and [Em]bower, he [G]shows us [D]great [A]distain[Em]
We'll [G]make him [D]rue the [A]day he was [Em]born and [G]taste of [D]shame and [A]pain.[Em]?'
Chorus x 1
[G]All the [D]elves from [A]out the [Em]wood b[G]egan to [D]dance and [A]spring[Em]
And [G]marched towards [D]the [A]farmer's [Em]house their [G]lengthy [D]tails to [A]swing[Em]
The [G]farmer [D]from his [A]window [Em]looked and [G]quickly [D]crossed his [A]breast[Em]
"Oh [G]woe is [D]me,'' the [A]farmer [Em]cried, "The [G]elves will [D]be my [A]guests.[Em]?'
In [G]every [D]nook he [A]made a [Em]cross and [G]all [D]about the [A]room[Em]
And [G]off flew [D]many a [A]frightened [Em]elf [G]back to his [D]forest [A]gloom[Em]
Some [G]flew to the [D]east, some [A]flew to the [Em]west, some [G]flew to the [D]north [A]away[Em]
And [G]some flew [D]down the [A]deep [Em]ravine and [G]there [D]forever [A]stay[Em]
Chorus x 3
