In Horkstow Grange there lives and old miser,
you all do know him as I've heard tell,
It was him and his man that we called John Bowlin',
they fell out one market day.
Pity them what see him suffer,
pity poor old Steeleye Span,
John Bowlin's deeds they will be remembered,
Bowlin's deeds at Horkstow Grange.
