Dm              G           Dm
Fair young maid all in her garden
Dm                  G         Dm
Strange young man came riding by
                  F    Em             C
Saying fair young maid will you marry me
              Em          Dm
And this then sir was her reply
Dm               G            Dm
Oh no kind sir I cannot marry thee
                    G                   Dm
For I've a love who sails the deep salt sea
                 F    Em          C
Though he's been gone these seven years
         Em              Dm
Still no man shall marry me
Dm                    G              Dm
What if he's died all in some battle slain
                    G                Dm
Or if he's drownded in the deep salt sea
             F     Em      C
What if he's found some another love
           Em                    Dm
He and his new love both married be
              G          Dm
If he's found some other love
                    G            Dm
He and his new love both married be
            F      Em       C
I wish them health and happiness
               Em                  Dm
Where they now live all across the sea
                 G          Dm
He picked her up all in his arms
                    G           Dm
And kisses gave her one two and three
               F    Em           C
Saying weep no more my own true love
         Em             Dm
I'm your long lost John Riley
               F    Em          C
Saying weep no more my own true love
             Em             Dm
For I'm your long lost John Riley

        From the "Fifth Dimension" LP
