The Witch of the Westmorland
Archie Fisher

G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
Pale was the wounded knight that bore the rowan shield


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
Loud and cruel were the raven's cries that feasted on the field


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
Saying beck water cold and clear will never clean your wound


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
There's none but the witch of the Westmorland can make thee hale and sound


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
So turn turn your stallion's head til his red mane flies in the wind


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
And the rider of the moon goes by and the bright star falls behind


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
And clear was the paley moon when his shadow passed him by


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
Below the hills were the brightest stars when he heard the owlet cry


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
Saying Why do you ride this way and wherefore came you here


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
I seek the Witch of the Westmorland who dwells by the winding mere


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
And it's weary by the Ullswater and the misty brake fern way


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
Til through the cleft of the Kirkstone Pass the winding water lay


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
He said Lie down my brindled hound and rest ye my good grey hawk


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
And thee my steed may graze thy fill for I must dismount and walk


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
But come when you hear my horn and answer swift the call


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
For I fear ere the sun will rise this morn ye will serve me best of all


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
And it's down to the water's brim he's born the rowan shield


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
And the goldenrod he has cast in to see what the lake might yield


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
And wet rose she from the lake and fast and fleet went she


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
One half the form of a maiden fair with a jet black mare's body


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
And loud long and shrill he blew til his steed was by his side


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
High overhead the grey hawk flew and swiftly he did ride


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
Say Course well my brindled hound and fetch me the jet black mare


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
Stoop and strike my good grey hawk and bring me the maiden fair


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
She said Pray sheathe thy silvery sword Lay down thy rowan shield


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
For I see by the briny blood that flows you've been wounded in the field


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
And she stood in a gown of velvet blue bound round with a silver chain


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
and she's kissed his pale lips one and twice and three times round again


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
And she's bound his wounds with the goldenrod full fast in her arms he lay


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
and he has risen hale and sound with the sun high in the day


G chordG C chordC G chordG Em7 chordEm7
She said Ride with your brindled hound at heel and your good grey hawk in hand


G chordG D7 chordD7 Em chordEm C chordC D chordD
There's none can harm the knight who's lain with the Witch of the Westmorland
