Henry Lee

Song Author Nick Cave Lyrics by: Nick Cave Performer: Nick Cave og PJ Harvey Submitted by: MagS
Get [Am]down, get down, little Henry Lee
And stay all night with [Dm]me   
You won't find a girl in this damn world
That will compare with [Am]me   
And the [G]wind did howl and the [G7]wind did blow
[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

I [Am]can't get down and I won't get down
And stay all night with [Dm]thee   
For the girl I have in that merry green land
I love far better than [Am]thee   
And the [G]wind did howl and the [G7]wind did blow
[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

She [Am]leaned herself against a fence
Just for a kiss or [Dm]two   
And with a little pen-knife held in her hand
She plugged him through and [Am]through
And the [G]wind did row and the [G7]wind did moan
[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

Come [Am]take him by his lilly-white hands
Come take him by his [Dm]feet   
And throw him in this deep deep well
Which is more than one hundred [Am]feet   
And the [G]wind did howl and the [G7]wind did blow
[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

Lie [Am]there, lie there, little Henry Lee
Till the flesh drops from your [Dm]bones
For the girl you have in that merry green land
Can wait forever for you to come [Am]home   
And the [G]wind did howl and the [G7]wind did moan

[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

[C]La, la, la, la, la,
[Am]La, la, la, la, lee
A [Dm]little bird lit down on Henry [Am]Lee   

Get down, get down, little Henry Lee
And stay all night with me
You won't find a girl in this damn world
That will compare with me
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

I can't get down and I won't get down
And stay all night with thee
For the girl I have in that merry green land
I love far better than thee
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

She leaned herself against a fence
Just for a kiss or two
And with a little pen-knife held in her hand
She plugged him through and through
And the wind did row and the wind did moan
La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

Come take him by his lilly-white hands
Come take him by his feet
And throw him in this deep deep well
Which is more than one hundred feet
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

Lie there, lie there, little Henry Lee
Till the flesh drops from your bones
For the girl you have in that merry green land
Can wait forever for you to come home
And the wind did howl and the wind did moan

La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

La, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
