John Barbury  Kate Rusby

The[Bm]re was a lady f[D]ine and g[A]ay,
[G]She looked so ne[A]at and tr[G]im,
[D]She went on[A]to her own ga[Bm]rden-wa[D]ll,
[D]To see the  sh[A]ips come i[G]n.
And carries on just the same!

And there she spies her daughter Jane,
Who looked so pale and wan:
�Oh, have you had some long sickness,
Or lain ye with some young man?�

�No, I've not had no long sickness,
Nor lain here with a man:�
Her petticoats they were so short,
She was a nine months gone

She was a nine months gone
�Oh is it by a nobleman?
Or by a man of fame?
Or is it by John Barbary,
Who lately come from Spain?�

�No, it's not by a nobleman,
Or by a man of fame;
But it is by John Barbary,
Who lately came from Spain.
Who lately came from Spain.�

And she's called down her merry men,
By one, by two, by three;
John Barbary was once the first,
But now the last came he.

�Oh will you take my daughter Jane,
And wed her out of hand?
And you will dine and sup with me,
And be heir to all my land.�

�Oh, I will take your daughter Jane,
And wed her out of hand;
And I will dine and sup with you,
But I do not want your land.�

For I have houses and I have land
And money out by the grand
And had it not been for your daughter
I'd never be your man, I'd never be your man
