C                               F        C
In a little country village not very far away

                                      D7               G7
There lived a rich but aged man whose hair was turning gray

C                                      F                 C
He had three sons three only ones both Jack and Tom were sly

    F              C           G7                  C
But Ted was honest as could be he would not tell a lie

                               F                    C
The brothers tried to ruin Ted before the old man's eyes

     F                 C                    G7                  C
Then the black sheep's words they came just ringing through the door

                                 F                  C
Don't be angry with me dad don't drive me from your door

                                  D7            G7
I know that I've been wayward but I won't be anymore

C                                F             C
Just give me one more chance and put me to the test

       F                    C             G7                  C
You'll find the black sheep loves his dad far better than the rest

Year by year sped quickly by the father who had now grown old

                                        D7                G7
He called to them both Jack and Tom and gave them all his gold

C                           F                 C
I only need a little room a place at your fireside

    F                 C            G7                    C
One night on Jack's returning home he brought with him a bride

                                   F                  C
The three began to hate the father more and more each day

                                       D7                    G7
At last he heard the three declare why the old fool's in our way

C                                   F                  C

     F                C                        G7             C
Then like a flash the black sheep's words came ringing in his ear

                                 F                C
A wagon drives up to the door it is the poorhouse band

                                  D7                  G7

Then a manly form appeared came rushing through the crowd

     F                   C              G7           C
Stop this you brutes the lad replied it shall not be allowed

                                       F                 C
You've took the old man's property and all that he could save

                                D7                  G7
You've even sold the little lot containing mother's grave

C                             F                      C
