[Verse]

Gm                          F         D7
It was round and about last Martinmas tide
         Gm    F           Gm
When the green leaves were swellin'
     Gm                       F        D7
That young Jimmy Grove of the West Country
        Cm                Gm
Fell in love with Barb'ry Allen

[Chorus]

   Bb       F       Bb/A Gm
He sent his men into the town
       Bb          F       Eb
To the place where she was dwellin'
    Bb       F             Bb/A Gm
"Oh will you come to my master, dear,
        Bb      F       Gm
If your name be Barb'ry Allen?"

[Verse]

    Gm             F       D7
And slowly, slowly got she up
    Cm              Gm
And slowly came she nigh him
    Gm                F         D7
And all she said when there she came
       Gm     F            Gm
"Young man, I think you're dyin'"

[Chorus]

     Bb       F         Bb Bb/A Gm
"Oh, yes, I'm sick, I'm very    sick
  Bb     F         Eb
Indeed I think I'm dyin'
      Bb        F           Bb Bb/A Gm
But a word from you would revive me again
   Bb     D7      Gm
Oh lovely Barb'ry Allen"

[Verse]

    Gm                F         D7
"Do you recall, young man," she said,
          Gm       F        Gm
"When the red wine you were spillin',
        Gm               F         D7
How you made the ladies' health go round
        Gm       Cm      Gm
And you slighted Barb'ry Allen?"

[Chorus]

    Bb       F       Bb Bb/A Gm
And death is printed on his  face
    Bb      F        Eb
And all his heart is stealin'
    Bb       F            Bb   Bb/A Gm
And again he cried as she left his  side
      Bb      F       Gm
"Hard-hearted Barb'ry Allen!"

[Verse]

   Gm            F        D7
As she was goin' over the field
    Gm        F           Gm
She heard the death bells tollin'
    Gm               F          D7
And every sound that death bell gave:
      Cm              Gm
"Hard-hearted Barb'ry Allen!"

[Chorus]

    Bb      F      Bb   Bb/A Gm
"Oh mother, mother make my   bed
   Bb      F        Eb
Oh make it soft and narrow
      Bb    F        Bb Bb/A Gm
Since Jimmy died for me to---day
     Gm      Dm    Gm
I'll die for him tomorrow"
