Dm                                      F      C         Dm
Cold blows the wind to my true love and gently drops the rain
Dm                                      F      C         Dm
Cold blows the wind to my true love and gently drops the rain
F      C       Gm                   F         C        Dm
I only had but one true love and in greenwood she lies slain
F      C       Gm                   F         C        Dm

F            C     Gm                    F            C     Dm
I'll sit and mourn along her grave for a twelve-month and a day

Dm                                              F      C       Dm
When the twelve months and one day was past the ghost began to speak:
Dm                                              F      C       Dm
                                            the ghost began to speak:
F         C           Gm                 F        C      Dm
"Why sit thou'st here along my grave and will not let me sleep?"
F         C           Gm                 F        C      Dm                    Dm
                                     and will not let me sleep?"   
Dm                                                 F         C      Dm
"There's one thing that I want sweetheart, there's one thing that I crave
Dm                                                 F         C      Dm
"There's one thing that I want sweetheart, there's one thing that I crave
F             C              Gm                        F  C         Dm
And that is a kiss from your lily white lips then I'll go from your grave"
F             C              Gm                        F  C         Dm         Dm
                                             then I'll go from your grave"        
Dm                                   F             C      Dm
"My lips they are as cold as clay my breath smells earthy strong
Dm                                   F             C      Dm
"My lips they are as cold as clay my breath smells earthy strong
F          C       Gm                  F         C        Dm
And if you kiss my cold clay lips your days they won't be long
F          C       Gm                  F         C        Dm                    Dm
                                  your days they won't be long
Dm                                    F          C      Dm
Go fetch me water from the desert and blood from out of stone
Dm                                    F          C      Dm
Go fetch me water from the desert and blood from out of stone
F           C           Gm                        F         C         Dm  
Go fetch me milk from a fair maid's breast that a young man never had known"
F           C           Gm                        F         C         Dm         Dm
                                           that a young man never had known"
Dm                                 F       C       Dm
'Twas down in Cupid's Garden where you and I would walk
Dm                                 F       C       Dm
'Twas down in Cupid's Garden where you and I would walk
F          C           Gm            F        C    Dm  
The finest flower that ever I saw is withered to a stalk
F          C           Gm            F        C    Dm  
                                  is withered to a stalk

The stalk is withered and dry sweetheart the flower will ne'er return
Dm                                           F            C      Dm
The stalk is withered and dry sweetheart the flower will ne'er return
F           C       Gm                 F     C      Dm
And since I lost my one true love what can I do but mourn?
F           C       Gm                 F     C      Dm
