   G                   C           G
As I was a-walking one midsummer's morning
  G                               C            D
I heard the birds whistle and the nightingales play.
    G                 C         Em
And there did I spy a beautiful maiden
   G       C           D          G
As I was a-walking all on the highway.


   G                       C           G
“O where are you going, my fair pretty lady?
  G                      C          D
O where are you going so early this morn?”
    G                        C        Em
She said: “I'm going down to visit my neighbours;
    G             C            D           G
I'm going down to Warwick, the place I was born.”


     G                        C            G
It's “May I come with you, my sweet pretty darling?
    G                  C          D
May I go along in your sweet company?”
     G                       C           Em
Then she turned her head and smiling all at me
        G             C             D           G
Saying: “You may come with me, kind sir, if you please.”


   G                         C           G
We hadn't been walking but a few miles together
  G                        C           D
Before this young damsel began to show free.
    G                          C          Em
She sat herself down, saying: “Sit down beside me,
        G              C             D            G
And the games we shall play shall be one, two and three.”


  G                              C           G
I said: “My dear lady, if you're fond of the gaming
        G                       C           D
There's one game I know I would like you to learn.
    G                      C           Em
The game it is called: The Game of All Fours.”
     G           C          D             G
So I took out my pack and began the first turn.


    G                       C        G
She cut the cards first and I fell a-dealing.
  G                       C             D
I dealt her a trump and myself the poor jack.
    G                   C             Em
She led off her ace and stole my jack from me,
         G           C           D            G
Saying: “Jack is the card I like best in your pack.”


       G                            C            G
“Since I dealt them last time, it's your turn to shuffle
    G                        C           D
And my turn to show the best card in the pack.”
     G                          C            Em
Once more she'd the ace and the deuce for to beat me,
      G          C           D              G
Once again I had lost when I laid down poor jack.


  G                    C              G
I took up my hat and I bid her: “Good morning,”
  G                             C            D
I said: “You're the best that I know at this game.”
    G                               C         Em
She answered: “Young man, if you'll come back tomorrow
      G             C        D     G
We'll play the game over and over again.”
