Intro:
E  C#m B C#m B E

Verse:

N.C. E    C#m   B    A
Fare-well to you, my faithful Nancy


   C#m   B    E
And a thousand times, adieu


N.C.  E     C#m      B    A
For the constable comes up from Brackley Market


   C#m   B     E
And a hundred volunteers too


Verse:

  A            E
No more will we hide in the forest


  F#m7           B
For fear they would run us to ground


    E  C#m   B    A
But the wild sea, we sailed upon it


C#m B      E
Too close to the wind


Instrumental:
E  C#m B C#m B E

Verse:

      C#m      B     A
For twenty years we have roved the highways


C#m B   E
Northamptonshire


     C#m     B    A
Daventry down to the southern byways


C#m       B      E
Topped both the rich and the poor


Verse:

  A             E
For ofttimes our families were starving


    F#m7         B
And the highway it kept them alive


    E  C#m   B    A
And the wild sea, we sailed upon it


C#m B      E
Too close to the wind


Instrumental:
E  C#m B C#m B E

Verse:

     C#m   B    A
Tonight I lie in a darkened dungeon


  C#m      B     E
Condemned on the gallows to die


         C#m   B   A
While the man who gave us away is only


 C#m    B  E
Bound for Australia


Verse:

  A            E
No man could be found to defend us


  F#m7           B
And naught but abuse came our way


    E  C#m   B    A
But the wild sea, we sailed upon it


C#m B      E
Too close to the wind


Instrumental:
E  C#m B C#m B E

Verse:

          C#m    B      A
And the clouds they rise over Northampton market


    C#m     B    E
And the crowds pour into the town


          C#m       B       A
And the people will throng in these streets until sunset


     C#m   B    E
When the hangman cuts us down


Verse:

  A         E
And fifty children of Culworth


   F#m7        B
Their fathers are taken away


    E  C#m    B    A
And the wild sea, they sailed upon it


C#m B      E
Too close to the wind


  E  C#m   B    A    C#m
The wild sea, we sailed upon it


  B      E
Too close to the wind


Outro:
E  C#m B C#m B E
