Three Ravens (Live) - Lyrics

There were three ravens sat on a tree, down-a-down, hey, down-a-down
And they were black as they might be with a down
The one of them said to his mate, "What shall we for our breakfast take?"
With a down, derry derry derry, down, down

Down in yonder green field, down-a-down, hey, down-a-down
There lies a knight slain under his shield with a down
Down there comes a fallow doe, as great with young as she might go
With a down, derry derry derry, down, down

She lifted up his bloody head, down-a-down, hey, down-a-down
And kissed his wounds that were so red with a down
She got him up across her back and carried him to the earthen lack
With a down, derry derry derry, down

She buried him before his prime, down-a-down, hey, down-a-down
She was dead herself ere evening time with a down
God send every gentlemen, fine hawks, fine hounds and such a loved one
With a down, derry derry derry, down

Writer(s): Mary Allin Travers, Noel C. Paul Stookey, Milton T. Okun, Peter Yarrow
