Ian HP Origins: Man of Double Deed (29) Lyr Add: THE MAN OF DOUBLE DEED 29 May 99

Thanks, Alice. The words I have are slightly different. I wonder if anyone can fill in the gaps, especially the two refrain lines?


1. There was a man of Double Deed / refrain: Hey ho in green O / And he sowed his garden full of seed / refrain: The man [of dreams again?] O
2. When the seed began to grow / It was like a garden full of snow
3. When the snow began to melt / It was like a [shoe?] without a [?]
4. When the [shoe?] began to sail / It was like a bird without a tail
5. When the bird began to fly / It was like an eagle in the sky
6. When the sky began to [lower?] / It was like a [lion?] at my door
7. And when the door began to crack / It was like a stick across my back
8. When my back began to smart / It was like an arrow through my heart
9. When my heart began to bleed / I was like the man of Double Deed
