Me
i'm just a poor boy from, across the far southland And,
i've traveled many days to reach this place to mke my stand I,
fell in with a merry band and, drank away the hours Chorus.

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 hand Of,
the thieving dukes and abbotts and, the gentry of the land Chorus.

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 The,,
dancing girls and the open fires the, wine that flows like water Chorus.

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