Angeline the Baker

Traditional, arr. by Crooked Still

[[ in the key of D, mostly just D and G, but toss in some A for flavour ]]

Angeline the baker, lives on the village green
The way I always loved her, beats all you’ve ever seen
Angeline the baker, Angeline I know
Should have married Angeline, twenty years ago

{refrain}
Angeline the baker, age of 43
Fed her sugar candy, but she still won't marry me
Angeline the baker, Angeline I know
Should have married Angeline, just twenty years ago

Her father was a baker, his name was Uncle Sam
I never can forget her, no matter where I am
She said couldn’t do hard work, because she is not stout
Baked the biscuits every day and poured the coffee out

{refrain}

I bought Angeline a brand new dress, neither black nor brown
It was the colour of a stormy skies, before the rain came down
Sixteen horses in my team, the leader he was blind
I dreamed that I was dying, I saw my Angeline

{refrain}
