ALISON GROSS Steeleye Span Alison Gross that lives in yon tower The ugliest witch in the North Country Has trysted me one day up to her bower And many a fair speech she made to me She stroked my head and she combed my hair She set me down softly on her knee Saying if you will be my lover so true So many good things I would give to you Away, away, you ugly witch Go far away and let me be I never will be your lover so true And wish I were out of your communy Chorus Alison Gross she must be The ugliest witch in the North Country Alison Gross she must be The ugliest witch in the North Country She showed me a mantle of red scarlet With golden flowers and fringes fine Saying if you will be my lover so true This goodly gift it shall be thine She showed me a shirt of the softest silk Well wrought with pearls abound the band Saying if you will be my lover so true This goodly gift you shall command Chorus She showed me a cup of the good red gold Well set with jewels so fair to see Saying if you will be my lover so true This goodly gift I will give to thee Away, away, you ugly witch Go far away and let me be I never would kiss your ugly mouth For all of the gifts that you could give Chorus She turned her right and round about And thrice she blew on a grass-green horn She swore by the moon and the stars of above That she'd make me rue the day I was born The out she has taken a silver wand She's turned her three times round and round She muttered such words till my strength it did fail And she's turned me into an ugly worm Chorus (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - July 2003)
