THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

TRUE GRIT I HEAR YOU SAY
AND MERRY ALONG THE WAY
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN
THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

AND THE RIVER SHE RUNS SO TRUE
AND NEVER LETS US DOWN
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

A MAID SO FAIR I MET THIS DAY
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN
A MAID WITH GOLDEN LOCKS SO FAIR
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN
AND THE ALE FLOWED LIKE THE WATER
FROM THE PENK TO THE SEA
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

AND TO THE DENE WE DID STRAY
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN
AND MARRIED AT THE HALING DENE
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

WE DID STAY HAY HAY HAY
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

TRUE GRIT I HEAR YOU SAY
AND MERRY ALONG THE WAY
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN
THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

SO RAISE A GLASS OF CHEER
AND MERRY ALONG THE WAY HAY HAY
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

                      TRUE GRIT I HEAR YOU SAY                        
AND MERRY ALONG THE WAY
IN THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN

THIS GOOD OLD MARKET TOWN
