The Unquiet Grave chords
Luke Kelly (15th century English folk ballad)

F F G  F F G F

    F         F      G      F
The Wind doth blow today my love,
  F         F         G
A few small drops the rain.
F            G       F        F
Never have I had but one true love,
   F         G      F
In cold clay she is lain.

     F     F        G       F
I'll do as much for my true love,
   F         F   G
As any young man may.
     F       G         F      F
I'll sit and mourn all on her grave,
  F            G     F
A twelve month and a day.

    F            F     G        F
The twelve month and a day been gone,
  F           F        G
A voice spoke from the deep.
     F     G        F     F
"Who is it sits all on my grave.
    F        G      F
And will not let me sleep?"

    F     F       G        F
Tis I Tis I thine own true love,
    F     F        G
Who sits upon your grave,
      F         G         F          F
For I crave one kiss from your sweet lips,
    F       G     F
And that is all I seek.

     F         F            G         F
"You crave one kiss from my clay cold lips,
    F            F      G
But my breath is earthy strong.
F           G                 F    F
Had you one kiss from my clay cold lips,
       F          G      F
You're time would not be long"

   F       F        G       F
My time be long, my time be short,
  F      F    G
Tomorrow or today,
F          G           F      F
May God in heaven have all my soul
         F         G       F
But I'll kiss your lips of clay.

    F       F      G      F
See down in yonder garden green.
F             F       G
Love where we used to walk.
    F        G           F    F
The sweetest flower that ever grew.
   F        G      F
Is withered to the stalk.

    F        F        G      F  
The stalk is withered dry my love
F           F        G
So will our hearts decay.
   F        G       F        F
So make yourself content, my love,
      F           G    F
'Till death calls you away."
