Lyrics
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL DAY
HENRY MY SON
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL DAY
MY BELOVED ONE
DOWN BY THE RIVER,
DOWN BY THE RIVER I WAS FISHING
THE WHOLE DAY LONG
DOWN BY THE RIVER,
DOWN BY THE RIVER
THE WHOLE DAY LONG

WHAT PUT THE BLOOD ON YOUR SHOULDER
HENRY MY SON
WHAT PUT THE BLOOD ON YOUR SHOULDER
MY BELOVED ONE
I GUESS IT IS THE BLOOD OF A HARE
AN OLD HARE THAT I KILLED TODAY
I GUESS IT IS THE BLOOD OF A HARE
I KILLED MOST CARLENTLY

I THINK THIS IS NO BLOOD OF A HARE
HENRY MY SON
I THINK THIS IS NO BLOOD OF A HARE
MY BELOVED ONE
THE BLOOD OF A MAN, THE BLOOD OF A MAN
THE BLOOD OF A MAN I KILLED TODAY
THE BLOOD OF A MAN, THE BLOOD OF A MAN
I KILLED MOST CARLENTLY

WHAT CAME BETWEEN YOU BOTH
HENRY MY SON
WHAT CAME BETWEEN YOU BOTH
MY BELOVED ONE
HE PUT HIS HANDS IN MY LEATHERBAG
HE TRIED TO STEAL MY MONEY AWAY
HE PUT HIS HANDS IN MY LEATHERBAG
SO I TOOK HIM DOWN

OUT THERE THE POLICEMEN COME
HENRY MY SON
OUT THERE THE POLICEMEN COME
MY BELOVED ONE
I`LL PUT MY FEET ON BOARD OF A SHIP
I WILL SAIL AWAY
I`LL PUT MY FEET ON BOARD OF A SHIP
TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY

AND WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR FAMILY
HENRY MY SON
AND WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR FAMILY
MY BELOVED ONE
THEY CAN PUT THEIR FEET ON BOARD OF THE SHIP
AND SAIL RIGHT AFTER ME
THEY CAN PUT THEIR FEET ON BOARD OF THE SHIP
AND SAIL RIGHT AFTER ME

NOW YOUR WORLD`S A PRISON CELL
HENRY MY SON
NOW YOUR WORLD`S A PRISON CELL
MY BELOVED ONE
NOW LISTEN TO IT, HENRY MY SON
THE CHURCH IS RINGING IT`S BELL
TOMORROW THEY WILL CHOP OFF YOUR HEAD
AND YOU`LL BURN IN HELL
