Joan Baez - Geordie Lyrics




As I walked out over London bridge
One misty morning early,
I overheard a fair pretty maid
Was lamenting for her Geordie.

Ah, my Geordie will be hanged in a golden chain,
'Tis not the chain of many
He was born of king's royal breed
And lost to a virtuous lady.

Go bridle me my milk white steed,
Go bridle me my pony,
I will ride to London court
To plead for the life of my Geordie.

Ah, my Geordie never stole nor cow nor calf,
He never hurted any,
Stole sixteen of the king's royal deer,
And he sold them in Bohenny.

Two pretty babies have I born,
The third lies in my body,
I'd freely part with them every one
If you'd spare the life of Geordie.

The judge looked over his left shoulder,
He said fair maid I'm sorry
He said fair maid you must be gone
For I cannot pardon Geordie.

Ah, my Geordie will be hanged in a golden chain,
'Tis not the chain of many,
Stole sixteen of the king's royal deer
And he sold them in Bohenny.

    one misty morning early
    I overheard a fair pretty maid,
    was lamenting for her Geordie

    Ah my Geordie will be hanged in a golden chain
    'tis not the chain of many
    he was born of king's royal breed
    and lost to a virtuous lady

    Go bridle me my milk white steed,
    go bridle me my pony,
    I will ride to London's court
    to plead for the life of Geordie

    Ah my Geordie never stole nor cow nor calf

    As I walked over the London bridge
    One misty morning early,
    I overheard a fair pretty maid
    Was lamenting for her Geordie.
    Oh, my Geordie will be hanged in a golden chain,
    'Tis not the chain of many
    He was born on king's royal breed
    And lost to a virtuous lady.
    Go bridle me my milk white steed,
    Go bridle me my poney,
    I will ride to London court
    To plead for the life of Geordie.
    Ah, my Geordie never stole nor cow nor calf,
    He never hurted any,
    Stole sixteen of the king's royal deer,

    If you'd spare the life of Geordie.
    The judge looked over his left shoulder,
    He said fair maid I'm sorry
    He said fair maid you must be brave
    For I cannot pardon Geordie.
    Oh, my Geordie will be hanged in a golden chain,
    'Tis not the chain of many,
    Stole sixteen of king's royal deer
    And he sold them in Bohenny.

    how do i add songs

  12. Buzzolan Leo

    Listen the italian De André version

    Sempre Disobbediente

    Great version, too. I first heard this song when I was studying in Bari. For many years I believed it was De Andrè's.

    Sera Kirk

    I first discovered this song via de Andrè too. The reference to London Bridge struck me as odd in an Italian song, so I did some more digging and discovered that it was actually originally English. Baez did a duet with de Andrè, btw, in Italian - just lovely.

  13. Ivan Taioli

    Bellissima anche l'originale

    Andreas Agnolin

    Quella di Fabrizio de andre

    LiriCagliari Channel

    @Andreas Agnolin Viene prima questa

    Andreas Agnolin

    @LiriCagliari Channel no

    Gabriele Cristadoro

    Ehm.. sì ☺️ è la versione originale del 1962 questa, De André la interpretò nel 1966 con Maureen Rix, insegnante di inglese che ne curò anche la traduzione 😉

    dima kote

    Neanche questa è l'originale. Geordie è un'antica  ballata  britannica nata intorno al XVI secolo,

    @Bt.Mooony _98 no no no this song is originally of inglish culture

    Giacomo Gennari

    Versione di De André e non rompete le palle👍

    mattioski asdrubalisquare

    @Giacomo Gennari è veramente originaria di una ballata inglese, non è di De André che la fatta in una sua versione, anch'essa un capolavoro, in più si può anche non insultare😘

    Giacomo Gennari

    @mattioski asdrubalisquare le parole non la melodia!!!

    mattioski asdrubalisquare

    @Giacomo Gennari parole di De André ovviamente in italiano e con il testo originario modificato, mentre la melodia è praticamente la stessa

  27. Stefania Vatini
