Henry Lee
arrangement/additional lyrics by Nick Cave
from the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album Murder Ballads


INTRO: Am

Am
Get down, get down, little Henry Lee
                        Dm
And stay all night with me
Dm
You won't find a girl in this damn world
                       Am
That will compare with me


CHORUS:
    G
The wind did howl, and the wind did blow
C               Am
La la la la la, la la la la lee
  Dm                            Am
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 fair better than thee


CHORUS


She leaned herself against a fence
Just for a kiss or two
And with a little pen knife held in her hand
Well she plugged him thru and thru


CHORUS


Come take him by his lilly white hands
Come take him by his feet
And throw him in this deep deep well
That's more than one hundred feet


CHORUS


Lie there lie there little Henry Lee
'Til the flesh drops from your bones
For the girl you have in that merry green
Can wait forever for you to come home


CHORUS

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