The Newry Highwayman as performed by Solas

Intro: D/ C/ G/ C/ D/ C/ G/ Am/ C/ D/ C/ D/ C/ G

G       D          C       G 
In Newry town I was bred and born,
             D         C       G   
In Stephen's Green now I lie in scorn.
            Am          C       D
I served my time in the saddling trade,
         G       C      D
I always was the rovin' blade,
         G       C      G
I always was the rovin' blade.

G       D          C       G
In Newry town I was bred and born
             D         C       G   
In Stephens Green now I lie in scorn
            Am          C       D
I served me time at the saddler's trade
         G       C      D
I always was a roving blade
         G       C      G
I always was a roving blade

G       D          C       G
At seventeen I took a wife
             D         C       G   
I loved her dearer than I loved me life
            Am          C       D
And so to keep her both fine and gay
         G       C      D
I went out robbing on the king's highway
         G       C      G
I went out robbing on the king's highway

G       D          C       G
I never robbed a poor man yet
             D         C       G   
Nor lately caused anyone to fret
            Am          C       D
But I robbed lords and ladies fine
         G       C      D
And I carried the gold home to me heart's delight
         G       C      G
I carried the gold home to me heart's delight

G       D          C       G
I robbed Lord Baldwin, I do declare
             D         C       G   
And Lady Manswell up in Grovenors Square
            Am          C       D
I closed me shutters and bade them good night
         G       C      D
And I carried the gold home to me heart's delight
         G       C      G
I carried the gold home to me heart's delight

G       D          C       G
To Covent Garden I made my way
             D         C       G   
With me dear wife for to see the play
            Am          C       D
The Fielding's men there did me pursue
         G       C      D
And I was taken by that cursed crew
         G       C      G
Oh I was taken by that cursed crew

G       D          C       G
My father cried, "Oh me darling son"
             D         C       G   
My wife, she cried, "Now I am undone"
            Am          C       D
My mother tore her gray locks and cried
         G       C      D
It's in the cradle I should have died
         G       C      G
It's in the cradle I should have died

G       D          C       G
When I am dead, I want for my grave
             D         C       G   
A flashy funeral pray let me have
            Am          C       D
Six highwaymen for to carry me
         G       C      D
Oh give them broadswords and sweet liberty
         G       C      G
Oh give them broadswords and sweet liberty
