Steeleye Span – Isabel lyrics

[Verse]
N.C.
I lie in this cage in full public gaze
N.C.
And I don’t give a pin for all their scorn
N.C.
For I’ve crowned my lover king
N.C.
Ah, such glorious days I’ve seen
N.C.
Give me the chance, I’d do it all again
Give me the chance, I’d do it all again

[Verse]
Robbie my love, you’ve the heart of a dove
Only Scotland could raise such a man
On the wild mountainside
I have lain down by your side
In spite of the bitter wind and rain
In spite of the bitter wind and rain

[Verse]
These soft southern dogs, have never scaled the heights
They cower in their comfort, secure
But he has dared it all
And he’s risked the fearsome fall
Surely god will crown the brave and the sure
Surely god will crown the brave and the sure

[Verse]
At proud Bannockburn their cringing hearts did turn
From his noble and daring campaign
I watched from a distant hill
And my heart flies with him still
Though my body may be caged and disdained
Though my body may be caged and disdained

[Verse]
He’s as bold as a ram, he’s as gentle as a lamb
He’s a man that could never be denied
He is generous and gay
But he’s changeable as day
And for just one hour with him, I’d gladly die
And for just one hour with him, I’d gladly die

[Verse]
N.C.
I lie in this cage in full public gaze
N.C.
And I don’t give a pin for all their scorn
N.C.
For I’ve crowned my lover king
N.C.
Ah, such glorious days I’ve seen
N.C.
Give me the chance, I’d do it all again
N.C.
Give me the chance, I’d do it all again
