Turpin Hero (From 'Turn')

Jake Bugg

On Hounslow Heath as I rode o'er
I spied a lawyer riding before
Kind Sir says he Aren't you afraid
Of Turpin that mischievous blade

Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

Said Turpin he'll never find me out
I'll hid him my money in my boot
Oh said the lawyer he'll never find me gold
For it's stitched in my cape behind

Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

As they rode down by the powder mill
Turpin commands him to be still
He said Your cape I must cut off
For my mare she needs a saddle cloth

Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

As turpin rode in search of prey
He met an excise man on his way
And boldly he did bid him stand
Gold he said I do demand

Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

And Turpin quite without remorse
Soon knocked him quite from off his horse
And left him on the ground to spall
Rode off with his gold and all

Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

As Turpin rode over Salisbury Plain
He met a lord judge with all his strain
Boldly then he did approach
And he robbed the judge as he sat in his coach

Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

Now Turpin is condemned to die
To hang upon the gallows high
His legacy is a strong rope
For Turpin hero there's no hope

Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh
