John Riley chords
The Byrds (English folk song) *

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
This then, sir, was her reply

Dm             G                Dm
Oh no, kind sir, I cannot marry thee
Dm             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
Dm                G                     Dm
Or if he s drowned in, in the deep salt sea? 
             F     Em         C
What if he s found some other love
           Em                    Dm
He and his new love both married be? 

Dm           G           Dm
If he s found some other love
Dm                G              Dm
He and his new love both married be
            F      Em       C
I wish them health and happiness
                Em                  Dm
Where they have love far across the sea

Dm              G           Dm
He picked her up all in his arms
Dm                G              Dm
And kisses gave her one, two and three
             F     Em          C
Then weep no more, my own true love
          Em             Dm
I am 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
