I figured this chords out after listening to Steeleye Span's "Journey" live 
album.  It features Gay Woods on lead vocals and Maddy Prior on backing vocals. I 
THINK it's in a different key than the original version on HArk! The Village Wait 
but it still works. It's one hell of a song.

C-F-C

C           F        C      Am
As I roved out one evening fair
                C           F        C   F
It bein' the summertime to take the air
            Am          G    C    F  C
I spied a sailor and a lady gay
        Am       C
And I stood to listen
        F        C        G                   C      F     C
And I stood to listen to hear what they would say.


C              F         C      Am
He said "Fair lady, why do you roam
                 C             F       C
For the day is spent and the night is on"
              Am              G        C
She heaved a sigh while the tears did roll
         Am         C
"For my dark-eyed sailor
         F         C          G                  C     F     C
For my dark-eyed sailor, so young and stout and bold."


C                  F              C        Am
"'Tis seven long years since he left this land
           C                 F          C        F   C
A ring he took from off his lily-white hand
                 Am            G         C   F  C
One half of the ring is still here with me
         Am       C
But the other's rollin'
          F       C              G            C      F   C
But the other's rollin' at the bottom of the sea."


C                  F        C           Am
He said "You may drive him out of your mind
             C                  F     C     F   C
Some other young man you will surely find
             Am             G        C    F   C
Love turns aside and soon cold has grown
           Am        C
Like the winter's morning
           F        C            G                    C
Like the winter's morning, the hills are white with  snow."


C               F       C        Am
She said "I'll never forsake my dear
                 C          F      C    F   C
Although we're parted this many a year
           Am         G         C    F   C
Genteel he was and a rake like you
     Am      C
To induce a maiden
      F       C         G                C
To induce a maiden to slight the jacket blue."


C                F               C      Am
One half of the ring did young William show
           C            F        C     F   C
She ran distracted in grief and woe
          Am                      G        C    F    C
Sayin' "William, William, I have gold in store
         Am        C
For my dark-eyed sailor
         F         C          G                C
For my dark-eyed sailor has proved his honour long"


C                F          C     Am
And there is a cottage by yonder lea
                 C         F     C    F  C
This couple's married and does agree
             Am              G         C    F    C
So maids be loyal when your love's at sea
        Am      C
For a cloudy morning
        F       C            G          C    F   C
For a cloudy morning brings in a sunny day.
