Verse:

           C      D
As I walked out on a midsummer's morning


        G       C    D
For to view the fields and to take the air


      G      C     D
Down by the banks of the sweet primroses


     G      C  D  G
There I beheld a most love lie fair


Verse:

           C     D
Three short steps, I stepped up to her


      G     C     D
Not knowing her as she passed me by


       G      C     D
I stepped up to her, thinking for to view her


        G      C D   G
She appeared to be like some virtuous bride


Verse:

             C    D
I says, "Fair maid, where are you going


         G     C    D
And what's the occasion of all your grief?


          G    C  D
I will make you as happy as any lady


      G        C   D G
If you will grant to me one small relief"


Instrumental:
G  C D x4
G

Verse:

                C    D
"Stand off, stand off, you're a false deceiver


     G        C   D
You are a false deceitful man, I know


         G       C    D
'Tis you that has caused my poor heart to wander


      G    C  D  G
And in your comfort lies no refrain"


Verse:

             C    D
"So I'll go down to some lonesome valley


        G      C    D
Where no man on earth shall there me find


            G       C      D
Where the pretty little small birds do change their voices


     G      C  D   G
And every moment blows blusterous wind"


Verse:

             C  D
So come all young men who go a-sailing


      G     C   D
Pray pay attention to what I say


          G     C   D
For there's many a dark and a cloudy morning


       G  C D   G
Turns out to be a sunshiny day


Outro:
G  C D G
