Karan Casey - Roger The Miller

Capo 4

[Verse 1]
      G                     D           G
Young Roger the miller came courting of late
                                   Em        C
To a farmer's fine daughter called beautiful Kate
    G                     Bm
She had for her fortune a many fine things
Am                        D
Beautiful silks and gold, diamonds and rings
    G          D          C            Bm
Her father, he gave her a neat plot of ground
She had also a fortune
        C      Bm         D            G      C  G  D
She had also a fortune of five hundred pounds

[Verse 2]
         G                      D              G
Then the money and supper, they both were laid down
                                  Em           C
Well, it was a great sight to see five hundred pounds
    G                       Bm
The sight of that money and beauty likewise
     Am                       D
Made Roger's heart greedy and dazzled his eyes
 G             D            C        Bm
"Now that your daughter and money is here
'Tis I will not have her
     C          Bm           D             G    C  G  D
'Tis I will not have her without that grey mare"

[Verse 3]
         G                     D          G
Then the money and supper were taken from sight
                              Em            C
And likewise young Kathy, his own heart's delight
G                   Bm
Roger was taken and shown out the door
    Am                      D
And ordered not for to come there anymore
      G           D           C           Bm
'Twas then he did tear at his long yellow hair
Saying, "I wish I had never
  C          Bm          D            G    C  G  D
I wish I had never spoke of that grey mare"

[Verse 4]
       G                              D        G
Now it was when six months, they were over and past
                         Em           C
And Roger the miller, he met with his lass
   G                         Bm
"I think I do know you then, madam," said he
   Am                        D
"I am the same way with you, sir," said she
   G             D             C           Bm
"A man with your features with fine yellow hair
Oh, he once came a-courting
   C           Bm          D             G
He once came a-courting my father's grey mare"

G  C  G  D  G  C  G  D
G  C  G  D  G  C  G  D

[Verse 5]
          G                      D           G
"Well, it was not a-courting the grey mare I came
                          Em       C
But you, my own jewel, my Kathy by name
  G                              Bm
I thought that your father would never dispute
   Am                         D
To give me the grey mare with you to boot
    G           D           C       Bm
And not to risk lose such a dutiful son
Oh, it's now I am sorry
     C        Bm        D           G     D
It's now I am sorry for what I have done"

[Verse 6]
          G                           D        G
"For your sorrow, young Roger, I have little regard
                                  Em         C
For there's plenty of men in this town to be had
   G                                  Bm
If you forgot the grey mare, you'd be married, you see
    Am                       D
But now you have neither the grey mare nor me
    G             D            C        Bm
The price of that mare, it was never so great
Oh, fare you well, Roger
    C              Bm              D         G      C  G  D
Oh, fare you well, Roger, you're a sorrowful state"

[Verse 7]
    G                   D        G
Now Roger's away to his desolate home
                                  Em        C
And he sighs as he sits there and sups all alone
G                        Bm
Kathy, she sings, she is happy and gay
        Am                     D
She has wed a young miller who works the long day
G                 D            C       Bm
Lads, when you're courting, be always aware
To court with a young maid
   C            Bm             D            G
To court with a young maid and not the grey mare

G  C  G  D  G  C  G  D
G  C  G  D  G  C  G  D
