G G/B G/D G 2×

[VERSE 1]
G             Bm              C                  G   
Me I'm just a poor boy, from across the far southland,
         Em            Bm                 C                D  A(7) D
And I've traveled many days to reach this place to mke my sta  -  and ,
Am      G     Am6     G/D        Dm     C       Cm
I fell in with a merry band, and drank away the hours.

[CHORUS]
Em      Bm            C       G
Rollin' on, I've been rollin' on,
       Em      Bm             C      G
And my head is high, from the battle won,
Bdim  Am  Bbdim7 Bm   Am/C C   G/C  G
Laid down my     life for  the Greenwood

[VERSE 2]
    G                  Bm                 C                G
The city boys, and the country boys, they come from miles around,
     Em                Bm                C                   D  A(7) D 
To defy their king and country, save the poor folks from the ha  -  and,
       Am       G         Am6      G/D     Dm     C      Cm
Of the thieving dukes and abbotts, and the gentry of the land.
 

[CHORUS]
Em      Bm            C       G
Rollin' on, I've been rollin' on,
       Em      Bm             C      G
And my head is high, from the battle won,
Bdim Am   Bbdim7 Bm    Am/C C   G/C  G
Laid down   my   life  for  the Greenwood

[VERSE 3]
G            Bm                C        G
  Sweet Maid Marion, don't you do me no wrong,
Em            Bm              C                 D  A(7) D   
  Stay on the right side, the Greenwood is your ho  -  ome,
    Am      G             Am6  G/D        Dm        C          Cm
The dancing girls and the open fires, the wine that flows like water.

[CHORUS]
Em      Bm            C       G
Rollin' on, I've been rollin' on,
       Em      Bm             C      G
And my head is high, from the battle won,
Bdim Am   Bbdim7 Bm    Am/C C   G/C  G      Am  C Am C 
Laid down   my   life  for  the Greenwood
