[Verse 1]

Am                          C
I'm just a traveler passing through 
       G
I wont haunt or bother you
                         Em        Am 
Though you could lend an ear to my story


[Verse 2]

Am                  C
You can call me old Jack
               G 
You might have seen me caped in Black
              Em             Am 
As I roam the streets of the village


[Intro Riff]


[Verse 3]
 
Am                  C
In her long flowing hair 
          G                  
You might find my story there
                     Em                      Am 
Though it was not my own hand that killed her


[Verse 4]

Am                     C
I went down a moon lit trail
G 
Rode out on a rail
             Em           Am 
And began my long life of journeys


[Chorus]

Am        G                     Am
In the ripple that rolls on the water
Am     G                        Am         
In the high rolling wave out at sea
Am        G                     Am    
In the shadow that flies on the valley
Am        G                        Em
In the middle is where you'll find me


[Banjo Solo]

Am (C G) (Em Am)


[Verse 5]

Am                  C
In a bath tub for a boat
   G 
My passage I did float 
                              Em           Am
Joined the ranks right on the docks of the city


[Verse 6]

Am                         C
In the fire of the Devil's den
G 
With the gray-coated men
       Em                             Am
I lost all my hope and my two brothers


[Fiddle Solo]

Am (C G) (Em Am)


[Verse 7]

Am                   C
So I wandered in the West 
          G
I settled down and did my best 
                   Em         Am
But my heart was unsteady and restless


[Verse 8]

Am                        C
I took a room on Houseton Street 
          G
Where the pawned poets would meet 
                      Em          Am
And we poured out the wine of the ages


[Chorus]

Am        G                     Am
In the ripple that rolls on the water
Am     G                         Am         
In the hard-hearted moon we both see
Am        G                     Am    
In the shadow that falls in the alley
Am        G                Em
In the riddle is where I’ll be


[Bridge]

F          Am
Ten little fingers...
F          Am 
Ten little toes...
F            Am 
Sleep little baby...
         G    F 
Will you ever know?
G        F 
Will you ever know?


[Intro Riff]


[Verse 9]

Am                   C
Years ago my lid was sealed 
              G
They threw me down in the potter's field 
               Em              Am
With the souls of the lost and forgotten


[Verse 10]

Am                             C            
And though my name is dead and gone
    G 
I remain and I carry on 
                   Em          Am
And I roam with an old band of brothers


[Verse 11]

Am                           C
And if you strum the ancient string 
        G
You may call my spirit in 
          Em                       Am
Or if you blow on the whole of the whistle


[Verse 12]

Am                 C
By an old highland air
      G      
I may stop and listen there
                           Em                Am
Or when the wren pulls her nest from the thistle


[Chorus]

Am        G                     Am
In the ripple that rolls on the water
Am     G                        Am         
In the high rolling wave out at sea
Am        G                     Am    
In the shadow that flies on the valley
Am      G                        Em
In a riddle is where you'll find me

[Outro]

N.C.
High above the cuillen moor
Stands the ole' man of storr
In the mist, the stone, and the mountain
If you scramble up that scree
Won't you stay a while for me
And watch the white rollin' waves wash the island
