A good sword and a trusty hand
A merry heart and true
King James's men shall understand
What Cornish men can do
And have they fixed the where and when?
And shall Trelawney die?
Here's twenty thousand Cornish men
Will know the reason why.
Chorus:
And shall Trelawney live?
Or shall Trelawney die?
Here's twenty thousand Cornish men
Will know the reason why.
2. Out spake the captain brave and bold
A merry wight was he
Though London Tower were Michael's hold
We'll set Trelawney free
We'll cross the Tamar, land to land
The Severn is no stay
Then one and all and hand in hand
And who shall bid us nay.
Chorus:

3. And when we came to London wall
A pleasant sight to view
Come forth, come forth, ye cowards all
Here are better men than you
Trelawney, he's in keep in hold
Trelawney he may die
But twenty thousand Cornish men
Will know the reason why.
Chorus:
