THE CARRION CROW 2/4 (Traditional)

Lyrics and chords as used by the McCalmans (they didn’t use the 5th verse) The guitar chords are by Marc Fahrbach who is now The Calmans biggest fan.

 

The (G)carrion crow sat upon an oak
To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee
Watching the tailor mending his cloak
To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee.

Chorus
(G)Hey fo lee fo (C)la fo (D)lerum
(G)Hey fo lee fo (C)lerum (D)lee -D
Up jumps John, a (D7)ringing on his (G)bell
To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee.

Wife (G)fetch me my old bent bow

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee
I will shoot the carrion crow.

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee

Chorus

He (G)shot the crow but he missed his mark

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee
He shot the old sow to the heart.

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee

Chorus

Wife (G)fetch brandy in a spoon

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee
Our old sow, she's in a swoon.

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee

Chorus

He (G)dragged the old sow to the house

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee
There they fed her tatties in sauce.

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee

Chorus

The (G)old sow died and the bells did toll

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee
The little pigs prayed for the old sow's soul.

To me (C)ring dong dilly dong (D)ky-ro-(G)lee


Chorus
