Loreena McKennitt - Kellswater



[Intro]
Am  F  Am  F

[Verse 1]
         Am             C/G        F
Here's a health to you, bonny Kellswater
          Am          C/G          F
Where you get all the pleasures of life
          Am          C/G         F
Where you get all the fishing and fowling
      Am        C/G           F
And a bonny wee lass for your wife

[Verse 2]
         Am             C/G        F
Oh, it's down where yon waters run muddy
     Am              C/G       F
I'm afraid they will never run clear
         Am       C/G        F
And it's when I begin for to study
   Am         C/G            F
My mind is on him that's not here

[Verse 3]
         Am           C/G          F
And it's this one and that one may court him
       Am     C/G          F
But if anyone gets him but me
     Am        C/G         F
It's early and late I will curse them
    Am             C/G         F
The parting lovely Willie from me

[Verse 4]
      Am         C/G          F
Oh, a father, he calls on his daughter
     Am           C/G       F
"Two choices I'll give unto thee
          Am         C/G             F
Would you rather see Willie's ship a-sailing
           Am          C/G           F
Or see him hung like a dog on yonder tree?"

[Instrumental]
Am  C/G  F   Am  C/G  F

[Verse 5]
    Am           C/G       F
"Oh father, dear father, I love him
      Am        C/G          F
I can no longer hide it from thee
           Am      C/G          F
Through an acre of fire I would travel
 Am               C/G        F
Along with lovely Willie, to be"

[Verse 6]
    Am           C/G            F
Oh, hard was the heartbreak I'm finding
    Am            C/G            F
She took from her full heart's delight
        Am            C/G          F
May the chains of old Ireland come find them
    Am           C/G        F
And soften their pillows at night

[Verse 7]
    Am               C/G         F
Oh, yonder there's a ship on the ocean
        Am            C/G          F
And she does not know which way to steer
         Am           C/G          F
From the east and the west she's a-blowing
      Am              C/G          F
She reminds me of the charms of my dear

[Verse 8]
         Am        C/G            F
Oh, it's yonder my Willie will be coming
   Am           C/G         F
He said he'd be here in the spring
         Am          C/G               F
And it's down by yon green shades I'll meet him
     Am        C/G         F
And among wild roses we'll sing

[Verse 9]
      Am           C/G          F
For a gold ring he placed on my finger
         Am              C/G     F
Saying, "Love, bear this in your mind
   Am     C/G           F
If ever I sail from old Ireland
       Am             C/G         F
You'll mind, I'll not leave you behind"

[Instrumental]
Am  C/G  F   Am  C/G  F

[Verse 10]
    Am           C/G        F
Farewell to you, bonny Kellswater
          Am          C/G          F
Where you get all the pleasures of life
          Am          C/G         F
Where you get all the fishing and fowling
      Am        C/G           F
And a bonny wee lass for your wife

[Outro]
Am  C/G  F   Am  C/G  F
Am  C/G  F   Am  C/G  F
