[Verse 1]
     F                 G7      C 
Cold blows the wind to my true love
C   G7               G    G7
And gently drops the rain
     C     G7      C        G     G7
I've never had but one true love
C      F          G7      C 
And in green-wood he lies slain

[Verse 2]
     F              G7      C      
I'll do as much for my true love
C  G7             G   G7
As any young girl may
     C       G7        C      G     G7
I'll sit and mourn all on his grave
C      F            G7    C 
For a- twelve month and a day

[Verse 3]
     F                       G7      C 
And when twelve months and a day was passed
C   G7                 G    G7
The ghost did rise and speak
     C       G7       C     G     G7
"Why sittest thou all on my grave
C   F        G7     C 
And will not let me sleep? "

[Verse 4]
    F              G7         C 
"Go fetch me water from the desert
C   G7                  G    G7
And blood from out of a stone
   C        G7          C           G     G7
Go fetch me milk from a fair maid's breast
C      F         G7        C 
That a young man never has known. "

[Verse 5]
     F             G7          C 
"How oft on yonder grave, sweetheart
C     G7              G    G7
Where we were wont to walk
    C       G7          C      G   G7
The fairest flower that e'er I saw
C   F        G7   C 
Has withered to a stalk."

[Verse 6]
     F                     G7         C 
"The stalk is withered and dead, sweetheart
C   G7                  G    G7
The flower will never return.
     C         G7      C        G     G7
And since I've lost my own true love
C    F     G7     C 
What can I do but yearn."

[Verse 7]
      F             G7         C 
"When will we meet again, sweetheart.
C    G7            G    G7
When will we meet again? "
          C      G7          C             G     G7
"When the autumn leaves that fall from the trees
C   F         G7         C 
Are green and spring up again."
