[Verse]
Am                   C          G
I’ll sing you a song about two lovers, 
Am                      C    D
who from Lichfield Town they came,
    C                    G       Am
The young man’s name was William Taylor;
    G               C     Am                        
the lady’s name was Sarah Gray.

[Verse]
Am             C     G
William Taylor had enlisted
 Am           C      D
for a soldier he has gone,
       C                 G         Am
He has gone and left his own true lover,
 G              C      Am              
for to sigh and for to mourn.

[Verse]
Am              C        G
Sarah’s parents did despise her -
Am                    C         D
filled her heart with grief and woe,
    C                     G        Am
She vowed and said, “I’ll find my lover, 
 G            C      Am          
for a soldier I will go.”

[Verse]
Am                     C      G
She dressed herself in man’s apparel;
Am            C       D
man's apparel she put on,
C                    G         Am
Then for to seek her own true lover,
G               C       Am         
for to seek him she has gone.

[Verse]
Am                 C             G
The sergeant major stepped up to her,
Am              C           D
asking her what brought her there.
      C                 G       Am
“I’ve come in search of my true lover,
G                 C      Am         
who has proved to me severe.”

[Verse]
Em              G       D
“If his name be William Taylor, 
Em             G      A
William Taylor is not here,
G                     D          Em
He’s lately married a rich young lady,
D                  G        Em
worth ten thousand pounds a year.”

[Verse]
Em                 G      D
“If you rise early in the morning,
Em              G         A
just before the break of day,
G                           D       Em
It’s there you’ll find your William Taylor,
D                    G     Em
walking out with his lady fair.”

[Verse]
Em                  G      D
Then she rose early in the morning, 
Em              G         A
just before the break of day,
    G                   D       Em
And there she spied her William Taylor,
D                    G     Em
walking out with his lady fair.

[Verse]
Em                        G           D
And then she called for a sword and a pistol,
Em                   G    A
which was brought at her command,
G                       D       Em
She fired and shot bold William Taylor 
D                 G         Em
with his bride at his right hand.

[Verse]
Em                              G      D
And then the captain stepped up to her horse,
Em              G           A
well pleased at what she’d done,
G                    D       Em
He took her and made her commander
D                  G        Em
over the ships and o’er his men.

[Verse]
Am                   C         G
I’ll sing you a song about two lovers, 
Am                 C          D
who from Lichfield Town they came,
C                        G       Am
The young man’s name was William Taylor;
       G            C     Am
the lady's name was Sarah Gray.
