INTRO: G  C  D  

   Am      C                D   G 
As I roved out one fine May morning
            C  G        Am      D
To view the meadows and flowers gay
    C                         D          Am
Oh, who should I spot, but my own true lover
   C          G   D
As she sat by yon willow tree

       Am               C     D    G 
I took off my hat and I did salute her
        C    G           Am     D
I did salute her most courageously
       C                  D               Am
As she turned around, the tears fell from her
         C                G        D
Saying, "False young man, you've deluded me

        Am               C       D       G 
And the diamond ring I behold, I gave to you
  C       G               Am         D
A diamond ring to wear on your right hand
        C                        D              Am
But the vows you made, love, you went and broke them
        C                  G       D      G  C  G  Am
And you wed the lassie who has the land."

                         C       D        G 
"If I wed the lassie who has the land, my love,
               C    G       Am    D
It's that I'll rue 'til the day I die.
        C                       D            Am
When misfortune falls, sure the man may shun it,
   C      G                D         Am
It was my fault, that I'll not deny"

INSTRUMENTAL: C  G  C  Am  D  C  D  Am  C  D     

        Am                    C      D   G 
"And at night when I go to my bed of slumber
    C              G        Am    D
The thoughts of my love are in my mind.
     C                D           Am
As I turn around to embrace my darling,
      C              G         D            
Oh, instead of gold, sure 'tis brass I will find

      Am                              C       D G 
And I wish The Queen would bring home all her armies
         C      G      Am         D
From the West Indies, America and Spain.
    C                D        Am
And every man to his wedded woman
       C                  G             D            
Oh, in hopes that I might be with thee again"
