  • Black jack davey come running all night
  • Whistling loud and merry
  • he pray the bells around him ring, and shone the heart of a lady,
  • Shone the heart of a lady
  • How old are you my pretty little miss, how old are you my honey
  • She answered him with a loving smile: I'll be sixteen on sunday
  • Said I'll be sixteen on sunday
  • Come and go with me my pretty little miss, come and go with me my honey
  • I'll take you where the grass grows green, and you never will want for money
  • said you never will want for money
  • HOI
  • (guitars)
  • Pull off pull off your long blue gloves made of spanish leather
  • give to me your lilly-white hand, and we'll ride on together
  • Said we'll both ride on together
  • Well she pulled off her long blue gloves made of spanish leather
  • And gave to him her lilly-white hand and bid farewell forever
  • And they both rode off together
  • Well late last night the boss came home, enquiring bout his lady
  • The servant spoke: before she'd gone, she'd been with black jack davey
  • Rode off with black jack davey
  • Come on come on my coal black horse, your speedier than the grey
  • We'll ride all day and ride all night and we'll overtake my lady
  • I'll overtake my lady
  • Well they rode all night till the broad daylight, when they came to a river raging......
  • (slower) And there he spied his darling bride, in the arms of black jack davey
  • Wrapped up with black jack davey
  • (guitars)
  • Would you forsake your house and home, would you forsake your baby?
  • would you forsake your husband too, to go with black jack davey
  • Run off with blacck jack davey
  • (sort of shouting) yes i'll forsake my house and home, yes i'll forsake my baby
  • And i'll forsake my husband too, to go with black jack davey
  • I'm in love with black jack davey
  • Oooh (quietly)
  • GUITARS
  • Last night i slept on a feather bed, between my husband and baby
  • And now I lay on the river bed, in the arms of black jack davey
  • I'm in love with black jack davey.....
  • END!
