The Incredible String Band

The Incredible String Band - Black Jack Davy

rate me

Black Jack David is the name that I bear been alone in

the forest for a long time

But the time is coming when

a lady I'll find I will love her

Hold her singing through

the green green trees

And the skin on my hands is like the leather I ride

and my face is hard from the cold wind

But my heart so warm with

the song that I sing

Charm a fair lady

Singing through the green green trees

Fair Eloise rode out that day

From her fine fine home in the morning

In the flush of the dawn came a sound to her ear

Drifting and floating

Singing through the green green trees

Now fifteen summers was

all that she'd seen

And her skin was as soft as the velvet

But she's forsaken her fine fine home

And Black Jack David is

Singing through the green green trees

Last night she slept on a fine feather bed

Far far from Black jack David

But tonight she will sleep on the cold cold ground

And love him and hold him

Singing through the green green trees

Saddle me up my fine gray mare

Cried the lord of the house next morning

For the servants tell me

my daughter's gone

With Black Jack David

Singing through the green green trees

And he rode all day and he rode all night

But he never did find his daughter

But he heard from afar

come adrift on the wind

Two voices laughing

Singing through the green green trees

Oh Black Jack David is

the name that I bear

Been alone in the forest for a long time

But now I have found me a lady so fair

I will love her and hold her

Singing through the green green trees
