     Gm     D          Gm         D7           Gm
Come all ye wild young people and listen to my song
          D      Gm                D7             Gm
I will unfold concerning gold that guides so many wrong
       Bb        F                Gm              D
Young Emma was a servant maid who loved a sailor bold
    Gm           D                Gm            D7                 Gm
Who ploughed the main much gold to gain for his love so we've been told.


   Gm           D        Gm              D7             Gm
He ploughed the main for seven years and then return-ed home
           D      Gm              D7              Gm
As soon as he set foot on shore unto his love did go
   Bb              F                Gm              D
He went unto young Emma's house his gold all for to show
     Gm     D               Gm              D7       Gm
That he had gained upon the main all in the lowlands low.


      Gm    D      Gm            D7           Gm
Young Edwin he sat drinking till time to go to bed
          D         Gm                     D7                Gm
He little thought a sword that night would part his body and head
      Bb           F            Gm              D
Young Edwin he got into bed and scarcely was asleep
     Gm  D         Gm             D7              Gm
When Emily's cruel parents soft into his room did creep


     Gm           D           Gm             D7             Gm
They stabbed him, dragged him out of bed and to the sea did go
              D    Gm             D7              Gm
They sent his body floating, down to the lowlands low
    Bb                  F             Gm                 D
"Oh father, where's the stranger came here last night to lay?"
    Gm    D       Gm                  D7            Gm
"Oh he is dead no tales can tell" the father he did say.


    Gm     D      Gm         D7              Gm
The fishes of the ocean swim o'er my lover's breast
         D        Gm       D7                 Gm
His body rolls in motion I hope his soul's at rest
    Bb              F         Gm             D
The shells upon the sea shore rolling to and fro
    Gm    D        Gm         D7                    Gm
Remind me of young Edwin that ploughed the lowlands low


   Gm     D       Gm              D7                Gm
So many a day she passed away and tried to ease her mind
              D           Gm               D7          Gm
Crying "Oh my friends, my love is gone and I am left behind"
    Bb          F              Gm               D
And Emma broken hearted was to Bedlam forced to go
    Gm           D         Gm         D7                    Gm 
Her shrieks were for young Edwin that ploughed the lowlands low.
