Déanta - Willie And Mary

CAPO: 3rd Fret

G    C   G  D   G    C   G

[Verse 1]
As Willie and Mary met by the seaside
           G           D
A long farewell for to take
     G                           C
Said Mary to Willie, "If you go away
                   G/B             G
I'm afraid my poor heart, it might break"
     C         D                        Em
"Oh, don't be afraid, dearest Mary," he said
      Am               G           D7
As he clasped his fond maid to his side
       C             G                   C
"In my absence don't mourn, for when I return
                       G/B      G
I will make you, sweet Mary, my bride"

[Verse 2]
Seven long years had passed and no word at last
                  G           D
Mary stood by her own cottage door
              G                      C
A beggar came by with a patch on his eye
               G/B        G
Bedraggled and ragged and tore
      C             D                 Em
"Your charity, fair maid, bestow upon me
     Am           G          D7
Your fortune I'll tell you beside
     C            G                  C
Your lad that you mourn will never return
               G/B      G
To make little Mary his bride"

[Verse 3]
She slipped and she started, saying, "All that I have
     G                    D
It's freely to you I will give
               G                      C
If you tell me true what I now ask of you
             G/B      G
Is my Willie dead or alive?"
      C             D                       Em
"He's living," said he, "though in sad poverty
    Am             G          D7
And shipwrecked he has been beside
          C                G          C
When he'd money untold and pockets of gold
                      G/B      G
He'd have made little Mary his bride"

[Verse 4]
"Then if he is dead, no other I'll wed
   G                     D
No other I'll have by my side
       G                                    C
For in riches though rolled or covered with gold
                       G/B      G
He'd have made his own Mary his bride"
         C             D                      Em
Then the patch off his eye the old beggar let fly
    Am           G          D7
His old coat and crutches beside
       C                              G               C
And in sailor's blue clothes and with cheeks like the rose
                  G/B          G
It was Willie who stood by her side

[Verse 5]
     C         D                        Em
"Oh, don't be afraid, dearest Mary," he said
        Am        G            D7
"It was only your faith that I tried
       C             G                       C
To the church we'll away by the break of the day
                     G/B     C
And I'll make little Mary my bride"
