Lyrics

In Nottamun Town, in Nottamun town
Not a soul would look up, not a soul would look down
Not a soul would look up, not a soul would look down
To show me the way to fair Nottamun Town

I bought me a horse, was called a grey mare
Grey mane and grey tail, green stripe on her back
Grey mane and grey tail, green stripe on her back
There was'nt a hair on her that was notl black

She stood so still, threw me to the dirt
She tore at my hide, and she bruised my shirt
From saddle to stirrup I mounted again
And on my ten toes I rode over the plain'

And when I got there, no one did I see
They all stood around a a-laughing at me
I called for a cup to drive gladness away
And stifle the dust for it rained the whole day

And the King and the Queen and the company more
Came a riding behind and a walking before
Come a stark naked drummer, -a beating a drum
With his hands on his bosom come marching along

Sat down on a hard, hot cold frozen stone
Ten thousand stood round me yet I was alone
Took my hat in my hand, for to keep my head warm
Ten thousand was drowned that never was born
