John Barbour
by Great Big Sea
capo on 3



F                              
What ails you my daughter dear
F        
your eyes are so dim
F 
have you had any sore sickness
F
or yet been sleeping with a man

F                   
I have not had any sore sickness
F      
but I know what's ailing me
F                            F
I thinking of my own true love
F                    F
he plows the raging sea
F                    F
he plows the raging sea

F         Dm       F         G        
be he a lord or a duke or a knight
F              G        F       
or a man of wealth of fame
F                           F
or is he one of my sailor lads
F                      F
come tell me now his name

F          Dm       F       G
he is no lord or a duke or knight
F              G         F
or a man of wealth and fame
F                          F
he is one of your sailor lads
F                         F
and john barbour is his name

F       Dm          F       G   
now if John Barbour is his name
F          G           F
a lowly sailor man is he
F                           F
and if John Barbor is his name
F                    F
then hanged he will be
F                    F
than hanged he will be


F            Dm       F       G    
the king he calls his sailors all
F          G        F
by one by two by three
F                                F
John Barbour was the first he called 
F                      F
but the last came was he

F        Dm      F       G
when he came a trippin down
F          G              F
he was clothed in all in white
F                             F
his hair were like the roses red
F                          F
and his teeth were ivory brite

F        Dm            F    G    
he paid their wages with a smile
F            G            F 
when John Barbour he did see
F                              F
if i was a woman if I were a man
F                         F
then bedfellows we would be

F          Dm        F       G
will you marry my daughter Jane
F          G         F 
and take her by the hand
F                            F
will you come and dine with me
F                       F
take charge of all my land

F        Dm           F      G
I will marry your daughter Jane
F           G             F
and I'll take her by the hand
F                          F
I will come and dine with you
F                            F
but to hell with all your lands
F            Dm       F        G
if you can give her one gold piece
F             G       F                        
then I can give her three
F                      F
for I am bold John Barbour
F                     F
and I plow the raging sea
F                  F
I plow the raging sea
F                  F
I plow the raging sea
