Verse 1:
     G
Oh, three Eynsham lads came out one day
               D
To Lord Abingdon's manor they made their way
   C         G
They took some dogs to catch some game
  A       D
And soon to Wytham woods they came


Chorus:
G      D
Laddie-i-o, laddie-i-o

Three jolly young fellows as ever did go


Verse 2:
  F#
We had not long been beating there
              C#
Before our spaniel put up a hare
B         F#
Up she sprang and away she ran
    Ab        C#
At the very same time a pheasant sprang

Verse 3:
F#
We had not beat the woods all through
                  C#
Before Barrett, the keeper, he came into view
B          F#
When we saw the old bugger look
  Ab       C#
We made our way to Cashington brook


Chorus:
    F#     C#
With a laddie-i-o, laddie-i-o

Verse 4:
G
When we got there 'twas full to the brim
             D
And you'd have laughed to see us swim
C         G
Ten foot of water, if not more
   A        D
When we got out, the dogs came o'er


Chorus:

   G      C          G
Three jolly young fellows as ever did go


Verse 5:
G
O'er hedges, ditches, gates and rails
            D
Our dogs followed on, behind our heels
C        G
You may say just what you will
     A        D
But we’ll have our hare in banter stew


Chorus:
