Artist: Kate Rusby
Song Title: William and Davy


William and Davy were born in one hall They grew side by side, as they grew strong and tall Shared most things, only quarrelled now and then In twenty years they were fine young men In twenty years they were fine young men William and Davy their hearts have been won For each young man she's the very same one Her eyes are blue; she has soft and snowy skin A fairer maiden there never has been A fairer maiden there never has been Said William to Davy this girl I must wed She fills my dreams like she fills my head Please be kind her true lover I'll be him And around the ocean I'm willing to swim And around the ocean I'm willing to swim Oh dearest William you must play fair She's in my heart and she will always be there And I am sure that she loves me more than thee In her arms I soon will be In her arms I soon will be Said William to Davy, away let us ride Unto her we will stand side by side There she'll choose who she'll love and who she'll wed And who will lie with her in her bed Who will lie with her in h
er bed The brothers they rode through wind and through rain Each of them her heart for to gain They rode until they were standing at her door Their bellies empty, their hearts were sore Their bellies empty, their hearts were sore Then swiftly the maiden she opened the door Young William and Davy, come round here no more Wed I am, oh and happy I will be Gold and silver he gave to me Gold and silver he gave to me William and Davy were born in one hall They both rode side by side and they never did stall They both have lost the girl that they adore Their bellies empty, their hearts still sore Their bellies empty, their hearts still sore (Thanks to Chris for correcting these lyrics)
