Raggle Taggle Gypsy  The Irish Descendants

There was three of the gypsies came to our hall door
They came brave an' [C]bol-del-o
But there's [Em]one sang [Am]high and the other s[Em]ang low[Am]
And the [Em]lady sang The Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]It was upstairs, downstairs the lady ran
She took off her silk so fine and put on a dress of [C]leather-o
And it [Em]was the [Am]cry all [Em]around our [Am]door
She's [Em]away with the Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]It was late last night when the lord came in
Inquirin' for his [C]lady-o
And the [Em]servin' [Am]girls took from [Em]hand to [Am]hand
She's [Em]away with the Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]You come saddle for me my milk-white steed
My bay one is not [C]speedy-o
And [Em]sure I will [Am]ride and I'll [Em]seek my [Am]bride
That's [Em]away with the Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]O for he rode east and he rode west
Half the south and the east [C]also
[Em]Until he [Am]rode to the [Em]wide open [Am]field
It was [Em]there he spied was his [Am]darling-o
[Am]Sayin Are you forseekin' your house or land
Are you forseekin' your [C]money-o
Are [Em]you [Am]forseekin' your [Em]own wedded [Am]Lord
An' you're [Em]goin' with the Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]What do I care for my house or land
Neither for my [C]money-o
Or [Em]what do I [Am]care for my [Em]own wedded [Am]Lord
I am [Em]goin' with my Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]It was ere last night you'd a goose-feather bed
With the sheets pulled down so [C]combley-o
But [Em]tonight you'll [Am]lie in the [Em]cold open [Am]field
All [Em]along with the Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]What do I care for my goose-feather bed
With the sheets pulled down so [C]combley-o
But [Em]tonight I'll [Am]lie on a [Em]cold barren [Am]floor
All [Em]along with my Raggle-Taggle [Am]Gypsy-o
[Am]Sayin' You rode high when I rode low
You rode woods and [C]valleys-o
But I'd [Em]rather get a [Am]kiss of the [Em]yalla gypsy's [Am]lips
O than [Em]all Lor' Cash's of [Am]money-o
