Old Maid in the Garret - Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem - tab by wompton

[VERSE 1]
         G
Now I've often heard it said from me father and me mother
     D                         C          G
That going to a wedding is the making of another
      G                        C            G           
Well, if this be so, then I’ll go without a biddin
                                          D
O kind providence, won't you send me to a wedding

[CHORUS]
        G C    G                C              
And its O dear me, how would it be,
     G                    D   G
if I die an old maid in a garret


[VERSE 2]
      G
Well, there's my sister Jean, she's not handsome or good-looking
D                         C          G
Scarcely sixteen and a fella she was courting
    G                        C         G   
Now she’s twenty-four with a son and a daughter
                                              D
Here am I at forty-five and I've never had an offer

[CHORUS]
        G C    G                C              
And its O dear me, how would it be,
     G                    D   G
if I die an old maid in a garret


[VERSE 3]
      G
I can cook and I can sew and I can keep the house right tidy
D                          C                 G
Rise up in the morning and get the breakfast ready
        G               C                G   
There's nothing in this wide world would make me half so cheery
                                           D
As a wee fat man who would call me his own deary

[CHORUS]
        G C    G                C              
And its O dear me, how would it be,
     G                    D   G
if I die an old maid in a garret


[VERSE 4]
        G
So come landsman or come pinsman, come tinker or come tailor
     D                            C                 G
Come fiddler or come dancer, come ploughboy or come sailor
     G                             C            G   
Come rich man, come poor man, come fool or come witty
                                           D
Come any man at all that will marry me for pity

[CHORUS]
        G C    G                C              
And its O dear me, how would it be,
     G                    D   G
if I die an old maid in a garret


[VERSE 5]
         G
Well now I'm away home for nobody's heeding
     D                  C            G
Nobody's heeding and to poor Annie’s pleading
     G                  C         G   
I'll go away home to my own bitty garret
                                              D
If I can't get a man, then I'll have to get a parrot            

[CHORUS]
        G C    G                C              
And its O dear me, how would it be,
     G                    D   G
if I die an old maid in a garret
