DigiTrad: TOM PIERCE (TAM PEARSE)

TOM PIERCE (TAM PEARSE)

Tom Pierce, Tom Pierce lend me your grey mare
All along, down along out along lee
For I wants for to go to Widdicome Fair
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney, Peter Davy
Dan'l Widden, Harry Hall, Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all

When will I see again my old grey mare
All along, down along out along lee
By Friday Noon or Saturday soon
With Bill Brewer........

Friday came and Saturday soon
All along, down along out along lee
Tom Pierce's grey mare she ne'er did romp home
With Bill Brewer........

Tom Pierce he went to the top of the hill
All along, down along out along lee
He sees his grey mare there a making her will
With Bill Brewer........

Tom Pierce's grey mare she took sick and died
All along, down along out along lee
Tom Pierce he sat on a stone and he cried
With Bill Brewer........

When the wind whistles cold on the moor of the night
All along, down along out along lee
Tom Pierce's grey mare doth appear ghastly white
With Bill Brewer........

And all the night long you'll hear skirlins and groans
All along, down along out along lee
Tom Peirce's grey mare a rattlin her bones
With Bill Brewer........

Recorded by Burl Ives and many, many others
