One Morning In May
(Public Domain, arr. James Taylor )
    A            G            D          A
One morning, one morning, one morning in May
   A            G                 D            E
I spied a young couple, they were making their way
A         F#m        D             A
One was a maiden, so bright and so fair
        A           D             E          A 
and the other was a soldier and a brave volunteer

      A             G             D              A
"Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning," said he 
     A             G         D        E
"And where are you going, My pretty lady?"
     A           F#m            D            A
"I'm going out a-walking on the banks of the sea
         A             D                 E           A 
Just to see the waters gliding, hear the Nightingale sing."

             A        G              D         A
Now they had not been standing but a minute or two 
     A          G          D         E
When out of his knapsack a fiddle he drew
        A            F#m             D           A
And the tune that he played made the valleys all ring
   A                D                 E           A 
"O hark," cried the maiden, "hear the Nightingale sing."

   A            G            D            A
"O maiden, fair maiden, it's time to give o'er." 
   A        G               D             E
"O no, kind soldier, please play one tune more
        A                F#m           D            A
For I'd rather hear your fiddle at the touch of one string
         A             D                 E           A 
Than to see the waters gliding, hear the Nightingale sing."

    A            G             D         A
"O soldier, kind soldier, will you marry me?" 
   A          G            D           E
"O no, pretty maiden, that never shall be;
       A           F#m        D              A
I've a wife now in London and children twice three
    A             D          E        A 
Two wives and the army's too many for me." 

            A          G                    D           A
"Well, I'll go back to London and I'll stay there for a year 
      A              G             D         E
It's often that I'll think of you, my little dear
       A        F#m           D         A
And if ever I return, it will be in the spring 
         A             D                 E           A 
Just to see the waters gliding, hear the Nightingale sing."
   A              D                 E           A 
to see the waters gliding, hear the Nightingale sing."
