James Keelaghan - Jack Haggerty

CAPO: 2nd Fret

INTRO: C    F  C  F  C    F  C  G  C

I'm a stout hearted raftsman where white waters roar 
       F           C                            F
And my name I've engraved on the high rocks and shore 
Over Camp Flat and river, I'm very well known 
     F            C             G            C
They call me Jack Haggerty, the pride of the town

I worked on the river by night and by day
         F                 C                        F
'Til the blacksmith's fair daughter my heart stole away
I'm the boy that stands happy on the dark, burling stream
       F                C          G          C
And my thoughts were on Annie, she haunted my dreams

INSTRUMENTAL: C    F  C  F  C    F  C  G  C

I gave her fine jewels, the finest of lace 
    F         C                      F
The costliest muslins, her form to embrace 
And I gave her my wages, all for to keep safe 
    F             C         G           C
I deprived her of nothing I had on this earth

I worked on the river, I earned quite a stake
      F             C                            F
I was steadfast and steady, and ne'er played the rake 
For that fair blacksmith's daughter, I'd soon make my bride
      F           C              G          C
And I courted her sweetly by the Flat River side

INSTRUMENTAL: C    F  C  F  C    F  C  G  C

Then, one day on the river, a note I received
       F            C                        F
Saying she from her promise, herself she did leave
And she'd wed with another, a long time delayed
        F             C                 G         C
And the next time I'd see her, she'd no more be a maid

To her mother, Jane Tucker, I laid all the blame
          F             C                          F
Well, she caused her to leave me and go back on my name
And to cast off the riggings that god was to tie
       F          C                 G          C
And to leave me a wanderer 'til the day that I die

INSTRUMENTAL: C    F  C  F  C    F  C  G  C

So, come all ye bold raftsmen with hearts stout and true
      F               C                           F
Don't give your heart quickly, you're beat if you do
And when your head's turned by a dark chestnut curl
       F           C                G          C
Just remember Jack Haggerty and the Flat River girl

## NOTE: On the studio recording, the end of this song transitions  ##
