Additional lyrics by Jim Moray/Bubbz


Lucy she sits at her father's door,
Weeping and making moan,
Byen comes her brother dear:
'What ails thee, Lucy Wan?'

'I ail, and I ail, sweet brother,' she says,
'I'll tell you the reason why;
For there is a child between my sides,
Between you, dear Billy, and I.'

So he has taken his good broad sword,
That's hung down by his knee,
And he's plunged it deep into Lucy's heart
To spoil her pretty body.

And he has mounted his good grey mare
And left her there to bleed,
And he's rode to the castle gates
Where he his own mother should see.


And by and by his momma comes home
And sees what he has done
She says: "What is the blood that stains your clothes
Come tell me, Geordie Wan"

"The blood that stains my clothes, mother
You need not not worried be,
It is the blood of my good grey hound
He would not run for me".

"Ah, The grey hound's blood was never so red
Now son you lie to me"
"Then it is the blood of my good grey mare,
She would not ride with me"

"Ah the grey mare's blood was never so red
Now son you lie to me
It's not the blood of the good grey mare
But the blood of our Lucy"


"What will you do when your father comes home
Now son come tell to me"
"I'll put my bag aboard some ship
And I'll sail to some foreign country"

"And when will you be back again
Now son come tell to me"
"When the sun and the moon dance on yonder hill
And I fear that never will be"
