    A Beggin' I Will Go (Thomas D'Urfey, c.1720)
    EmGDEm
    Of all the trades in England, Beggin' is the best, 
    EmGEmD
    For when a beggar's tired, He can lay him down to rest. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    EmGDEm
    I got a pocket for me oatmeal, And another for me rye, 
    EmGEmD
    I got a bottle by me side, To drink when I am dry. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    EmGDEm
    I got patches on me cloak, And a black patch on me knee, 
    EmGEmD
    When you come to take me home, I'll drink as well as thee. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    EmGDEm
    I got a pocket for me salt, And another for me malt, 
    EmGEmD
    I got a pair of little crutches, You should see how I can halt. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    EmGDEm
    I've been a-beggin' seven years, With me ol' wooden leg, 
    EmGEmD
    For lame I've been, since I was born, And so I'm forced to beg. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    EmGDEm
    I sleep beneath an open tree, And there I pay no rent, 
    EmGEmD
    Providence provides for me, And I am well content. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    EmGDEm
    I fear no plots against me, I live in open cell, 
    EmGEmD
    Who would be a king then, When beggars live so well? 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    EmGDEm
    Of all the trades in England, Beggin' is the best, 
    EmGEmD
    For when a beggar's tired, He can lay him down to rest. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go. 
    AmEmDEm
    And a-begging I will go, A-begging I will go.
