SONGS THE MINSTREL SANG (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1978 It's almost over, it's almost done And you can't put the blame on anyone It's almost easy and it's almost fun Did you get caught with your britches on. Hi derry day in the month of May Was the song the minstrel sang To the good of Robin Hood Maid Marion and all the gang. His aim was mean and his shot was clean And his suit was the sheen of a evergreen The folks he knew hadn't naught to fear When the sheriff was there they were over here. Hi derry doon in the month of June Was the song the minstrel sung To the good of Robin Hood's Good name and a place to run. He loved strong ale and a run down jail Was the kind of a scene where he never failed There was no man on the sea or land Who could get Maid Marion on the trail. Hi derry day in the month of May Was the song the minstrel sang To the good of Robin Hood Maid Marion and all the gang. (bridge) It's almost over, it's almost done And you can't put the blame on Marion She almost made it to the friar's gate But the old wooden bridge wouldn't elevate. Hi derry doon in the month of June Was the song the minstrel sung To the good of Robin Hood's Good name and a place to run. (Transcribed by David Story - February 2013)
