Hi For The Beggarman 2/4 (Traditional)
Lyrics and chords fit the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem on their album ‚Freedom Sons’. Use a capo on the 5th fret.

Intro:  C-(C-G)-G-G   C-C-(C-G)-C
The (C)night being dark and very (G)cold,
A woman took pity on a poor old soul
(C)She took pity on a poor old soul
And asked him (G)to come (C)in
 
 
Chorus
With a (C)too-roo roo-roo rantin (G)hi,
A too-roo roo-roo rantin hi
(C)Too-roo roo-roo rantin hi,
And hi for the (G)beggar(C)man
He (C)sat him down in a chimney (G)nook,
He hung his coat upon a hook
He (C)hung his coat upon a hook
And merrily (G)he did (C)sing
 
 
Chorus
 
 
In the (C)middle of the night the old woman (G)rose,
She missed the beggarman and all his clothes
She (C)clapped and clapped and clapped again,
Says, "He has me (G)daughter (C)gone"

Chorus + Intro

(C)Three long years have passed and (G)gone,
When this old man came back again
(C)Asking for a charity:
"Would you lodge a (G)beggar(C)man?"

"I (C)never lodged any but the (G)one,
And with that one me daughter's gone
(C)With that one me daughter's gone,
So merrily (G)you may (C)gang"

Chorus
"Would you (C)like to see your daughter (G)now,
With two babies on her knee
(C)With two babies on her knee
And another one (G)coming (C)on?"

"For (C)yonder she sits and yonder she (G)stands,
The finest lady in all the land
(C)Servants there at her command
Since she went with the (G)beggar(C)man"
Chorus
