ELO - Poor boy (The Greenwood)
Tekst en muziek: Jeff Lynne
(1974)






Me, I’m just a poor boy from across the far southland
And I’ve traveled many days to reach this place to make my stand
Oh, and I fell in with a merry band and drank away the hours



Rollin’ on
I’ve been rollin’ on
And my head is high from the battle won
Laid down my life for the Greenwood



The city boys and the country boys, they come from miles around
To defy their king and country, save the poor folks from the hand
Of the thieving dukes and abbotts, and the gentry of the land



Rollin’ on
I’ve been rollin’ on
And my head is high from the battle won
Laid down my life for the Greenwood



Sweet Maid Marion, don’t you do me no wrong
Stay on the right side, the Greenwood is your home
All the dancing girls and the open fires and the wine that flows like water



Rollin’ on
I’ve been rollin’ on
And my head is high from the battle won
Laid down my life for the Greenwood
