GAMBLE GOLD (Traditional) Steeleye Span There chanced to be a pedlar bold A pedlar bold he chanced to be He rolled his pack all on his back And he came tripping o'er the sea By chance he met two troublesome blades Troublesome blades they chanced to be One of them was Robin Hood The other was little John so free Chorus Gentlemen on high born blood Gamble Gold and Robin Hood ``Oh pedlar, pedlar what's in the pack Come speedily and tell to me'' ``I've several suits of the gay green silk And silken bow strings two of three'' ``If you have suits of the gay green silk And silken bow strings two of three'' ``Then by my body'' cries Robin Hood ``Half your pack belongs to me'' Chorus ``Oh no, oh no,'' says the pedlar bold ``No that can never be There's never a man in Nottingham Can take one half my pack from me!'' The Robin Hood he drew his sword And the pedlar by his pack did stand They fought 'till the blood in streams did flow And he cried ``Pedlar hold hold your hand'' Chorus ``Oh pedlar, pedlar what's thy name Come speedily and tell to me'' ``I'm Gamble Gold of the gay green woods I've travelled far beyond the sea'' ``If you're Gamble Gold of the gay green woods Then my cousin you must be Let us away to a tavern near And bottles crack most merrily'' Chorus
