Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Robin Hood song
Here you are then.

Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
Riding thro' the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
With his band of men,
Feared by the bad,
Loved by the good,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Robin Hood.

He called the greatest archers to a tavern on the green,
They vowed to help the people of the King;
They handled all the trouble on the English country scene,
And still found plenty of time to sing,

Robin Hood ........

He came to Sherwood Forest with a feather in his cap,
A fighter never looking for a fight;
His bow was always ready and he kept his arrows sharp,
He used them fighting for what was right.

Robin Hood........

With Alan Dale and Little John, they had a roguish look,
They did the deeds that others wouldn't dare;
Recaptured all the money that the evil sheriff took,
And rescued many a lady fair,

Robin Hood .........

To cheating and corruption he would never, never yield,
And danger was his breakfast ev'ry day;
The cobbler in the hamlet and the farmer in the field
Were always helping him get away.

Robin Hood ........

He rode up to the palace and was cheered by ev'ry one,
His Lady Marian threw him a rose;
The King of England knighted him the Earl of Huntingdon,
And that's the way the legend goes.

Robin Hood .........
