And all his nobles with him
                              A chord diagramF# minorF#m

Among the gentlewomen

That her lord was wed in London

For the Earl of Aboyne is coming

You hear his bridles ringing”

And happier flowers are shining
                                         A chord diagramF# minorF#m
And cover the stair with herbs sweet and fair
        A chord diagramB minorBm              A chord diagramF#m7F#m7   A chord diagramB minorBm
And the floors with the finest linen

“And deck my body in the finest array
   A chord diagramB minorBm          A chord diagramF#m7F#m7      A chord diagramB minorBm
My hood of the brightest linen
                                       A chord diagramF# minorF#m
And my apron shall be of the good silk cloth

Since the lord of Aboyne is coming”

To see if he was coming

And her gown was of the good green silk

Trimmed with her red silk trimming


Verse:

She's called to Kate, her waiting maid
    A chord diagramB minorBm        A chord diagramF#m7F#m7  A chord diagramB minorBm
And Jean, her gentlewoman
                                        A chord diagramF# minorF#m
“Come fetch me a glass of the very best wine
