Lyrics

As I walked out over London Bridge One misty morning early I overheard a fair pretty maid Lamenting the life of Geordie And he never stole a cloud and he never stole the ground He never hurted any Stole sixteen of the king's royal deer And sold them in Kilkenny Go bridle me my milk white steed Go bridle me my pony For I'll ride onto the court, oh To plead for the life of Geordie Oh hе never stole lox and hе never stole hats He never stole much of any Stole sixteen of the king's royal deer And sold them in Kilkenny In town, she rode into the court, oh There were lords and ladies aplenty Out on her bended knees, she feared To plead for the life of Geordie And the judge, he looked over his left shoulder And he said "Dear girl, I'm sorry" He said "Dear girl, you've come too late For he's been condemned already Oh that's Geordie, hanged in golden chains These chains is ne'er of any Oh he gave of royal blood And courted a virtuous lady
