BLACKJACK DAVID^^^

Blackjack David is the name that I bear
Been alone in the forest for a long time
But the time is come, and when a lady I find
I will love her and hold her, singing through the green green
trees

The skin on my hands is like leather, alright.
My face is so hard from the cold wind
But my heart's so warm with the song that I sing
Will charm a fair lady, singing through the green green trees

Now fair Eloise rode out that day...^^^
As Malcolm says below, this is Mike Heron's Incredible String Band version, apparently copied directly from the Digital Tradition. Please don't post lyrics we already have. Just post an excerpt for clarity (if needed, and a link to the lyrics). If you post lyrics we already have, then we have to do fruitless research to find out that we already have them. We like to help, but please don't make people do extra work. Whenever you post lyrics, please state where you found them. Thanks.
