[Intro]
Am F Dm Am


[Verse]
Am                        F
A man there came from the far north lands
  Dm            Am
A maiden he did spy
   Am                F
He swore to take her in his hands
    Dm               Am 
And she would be his bride
    Am                F 
“Go fetch for me your father’s gold
     Dm               Am 
Some of your mother’s fee
Am                       F 
Two of the nags from the stable hold
      Dm                 Am 
Where there stand thirty-three”

Am                 F
She mounted up her milk-white steed
    Dm           Am                 
And he, a dapple-grey
     Am                 F
They rode a mile to the stormy sea
       Dm             Am
In the early hours of day
Am                       F
“Doff off, doff off, thy silken things
  Dm            Am 
Deliver them to me
Am                    F
They are too rich and set with rings
   Dm           Am                     
To rot in salty sea”
       G
“Light off, light off and turn this way
G
Reveal yourself to me
  Am                F 
I have here drowned six pretty maids
    Dm                   Am
And you will the seventh be”


[Instrumental]
Am F Dm Am
Am F Dm Am


[Verse]
Am                     F
She said, “Doff off my silken things?
      Dm                Am
First turn your back on me
Am                F
It is not right a ruffian king
  Dm                 Am 
A naked woman should see
Am                       F
Go fetch the sickle, the nettles crop
     Dm                Am
They grow too near the brim
Am                     F
And they may tangle my golden locks
   Dm                    Am 
Or freckle my milk-white skin”

Am                   F
And so he turned himself around
   Dm                Am 
Surveyed the land so green
Am                         F                                      
She caught him square, his neck she crowned
    Dm                 Am 
And threw him into the stream
     G 
“Lie there, lie there, and hold the tides
G
Lie down for the love of me
       Am                   F 
You’ve drowned yourself for six sweet brides
     Dm              Am 
I’ll not the seventh be”


[Instrumental]
Am F Dm Am
Am F Dm Am


[Verse]
Am                 F
She mounted up her horse so fine
    Dm               Am 
And took the mare of grey
Am                   F
She rode herself the country mile
    Dm                Am 
And stowed them safe away
Am                      F
The parrot stood at his high window
      Dm                     Am 
“What ails? What ails? Young maid
Am                           F
Your face is bathed with the afterglow
    Dm               Am
The longest time you stayed”
G
“Oh, hold your tongue, my bird so bold
G
The king will hear of thee
Am                           F 
Your cage I will make of the beaten gold 
    Dm                 Am
And hang in the willow tree”
