Widdecombe Fair

Tom Pierce, Tom Pierce, lend me thy gray mare
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
That I may ride up to Widdecombe Fair
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all

Oh when shall I see my gray mare home again?
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
By Friday night or Saturday morn
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all

Oh Friday night was past and Saturday was come
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
Tom Pierce's old gray mare was not a come home
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all

Tom pierce he went up on a high hill
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
He saw his old mare down making his will
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all

So how did you know it was your old mare
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
Her one foot was shoed and the other three bare
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all

The wind whistles hard on the moor of a night
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
Tom Pierce's gray mare he appeared ghastly white
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all

Then all the night long we heard shirklins and groans
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
Tom Pierce's gray mare he was rattling his bones
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all

So this is the end of my shocking affair
Ri fol lol the dol diddle i doe
I've give you the career of Tom Pierce's old mare
With Phil Lewer, Jan Brewer, Harry Hawkins, Hugh Davy
  Philly Whitpot, George Pausley, Dick Wilson, Tom Cobbley and
  all, Here is Uncle Tom Cobbley and all
