Poor Boy (The Greenwood) Songtext

Me, I'm just a poor boy from across the far South lands
And I've traveled many days to reach this place, to make my stand
Oh, and I fell in with a merry band and drank away the hours

Rollin' on, I've been rollin' on
And my head is high from the battle won
Laid down my life for the Greenwood

The city boys and the country boys, they come from miles around
To defy their King and country, save the poor folks from the hands
Of the thieving dukes and abbots and the gentry of the land


Rollin' on, I've been rollin' on
And my head is high from the battle won
Laid down my life for the Greenwood

Sweet maid Marion, don't you do me no wrong
Stay on the right side, the Greenwood is your home
All the dancing girls and the open fires
And the wine that flows like water

Rollin' on, I've been rollin' on
And my head is high from the battle won
Laid down my life for the Greenwood
