The Three Crows (Billy MacGee MacGore) There was three crows sat on a tree O Billy MacGee MacGore, There was three crows sat on a tree, O Billy MacGee MacGore, There was three crows sat on a tree And they were as black as crows could be, And they all flapped their wings and cried: Caw, caw, caw, And they all flapped their wings and cried: Billy MacGee MacGore. Said one old crow unto his mate: What will we do for grub to eat? There is a dead horse on yonders plain, Just by some cruel butcher's slain. We'll perch ourselves on his back-bone, And pick his eyes out one by one. Child #26 From Singing Tradition of Child's Popular Ballads, Bronson RG
