Old Leatherstocking – Death and the Lady

Banjo Heritage 👉 https://Patreon.com/CliftonHicks I learned “Death and the Lady” (Roud 1031) from a recording of Norma Waterson & Martin Carthy. The song was first printed in England in 1778. As I walked out one winter day I met a man along the way, His head was bald his beard was grey His clothing made of the cold red clay (x2) I said old man what happened to you? What country did you belong unto? My name is Death I’ve come for thee All kings and princes bow down to me (x2) I’ll give you gold I’ll give you pearls I’ll give you a fine silk robe to wear, If you will spare me one season more Give me some time my life to amend (x2) I want no gold I want no pearls I want no fine silk robe to wear, I cannot give you one season more Nor give you some time your life to amend (x2) Three days later that lady died Carve this upon my tomb she cried, As I am now you’ll be one day Your clothing made of the cold red clay (x2) Merch https://www.BanjoHeritage.org/ Bandcamp http://cliftonhicks.bandcamp.com PayPal https://paypal.me/cliftonhicksbanjo Spotify iTunes https://music.apple.com/us/artist/clifton-hicks/1437321931 SubscribeStar https://www.subscribestar.com/cliftonhicks Patreon https://patreon.com/CliftonHicks #CliftonHicks #banjoheritage #banjo #blues #bluegrass #folkmusic #tradmusic #rootsmusic #acousticmusic #oldtimemusic #twofingerbanjo #clawhammerbanjo #OldLeatherstocking #oldtimebanjo #americana #countrymusic #countrywestern #celtic #tradmusic
