Widow Of Westmorelands Daughter Chords - Misc Traditional


 
Widow Of Westmorelands Daughter Chords
V1.
There (C)was an old widow in Westmorland
Who (Bb)had no daughter but one
And (C)she has prayed both (F)night and day
She (C)should keep her (G7)maidenhead (C)long
"Ah, (C)don't be daft, mother," she said,
"And (Bb)say no more to me
For a (C)fine young man in the (F)Grenadier Guards
My (C)maidenhead's (G7)taken from (C)me"
"You (C)saucy cat, you impudent cat,
A-(Bb)cursed may you be
If some (C)idle young rogue in the (F)Grenadier Guards
Your (C)maidenhead's (G7)taken from (C)thee"

V2.
Oh the girlie's off to the Grenadier Guards
As fast as go can she
Saying "Give me back my maidenhead,
My mother she nags at me"
So he kissed her and undressed her
And he laid her on the bed
And he put her head where her feet were before
And gave back her maidenhead
Then he kissed her and he dressed her
With a rose in either hand
Invited her round to St. Mary's church
To see his fine wedding

V3.
Oh, the girlie's off to her mammy's house
As fast as go can she
"I'm as full a maiden, mammy dear,
As the day you first bore me
He kissed me and undressed me
And he laid me on the bed
Put my head where my feet were before
And he gave back my maidenhead
Then he kissed me and he dressed me,
Put a rose in either hand
And invited me round to St. Mary's church
To see his fine wedding

This song appears on the Fairport Convention album 'Tipplers Tails' but, it is a 
traditional folk song. Their version is brilliant & well worth a listen to.
