      A chord diagramA majorA          A chord diagramE minorEm       A chord diagramG MajorG   A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramE minorEm
There were three men came out of the west,
      A chord diagramA majorA        A chord diagramG MajorG   A chord diagramD MajorD  A chord diagramE minorEm
their fortunes for to try
    A chord diagramA majorA           A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramG MajorG A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
And these three men made a solemn vow:
     A chord diagramA majorA     A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
John Barleycorn must die.

        A chord diagramG MajorG                 A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramE minorEm
They've ploughed, they've sewn, they've harrowed him in;
      A chord diagramG MajorG        A chord diagramA majorA        A chord diagramE minorEm
threw clods at Barley's head
    A chord diagramA majorA           A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramG MajorG A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
And these three men made a solemn vow:
     A chord diagramA majorA     A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
John Barleycorn was dead.

        A chord diagramA majorA       A chord diagramE minorEm        A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
They've let him lie for a very long time,
          A chord diagramA majorA          A chord diagramG MajorG      A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
'till the rains from heaven did fall
    A chord diagramA majorA          A chord diagramE minorEm          A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
And little Sir John sprung up his head,
    A chord diagramA majorA   A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
and so amazed them all.

        A chord diagramG MajorG       A chord diagramE minorEm     A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
They've let him stand 'till midsummer's day,
      A chord diagramG MajorG              A chord diagramA majorA        A chord diagramE minorEm
'till he looked both pale and worn
    A chord diagramA majorA          A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
And little Sir John's grown a long, long beard,
    A chord diagramA majorA    A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramE minorEm
and so become a man.

        A chord diagramA majorA     A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramG MajorG       A chord diagramD MajorD  A chord diagramE minorEm
They've hired men with the scythes so sharp,
   A chord diagramA majorA       A chord diagramG MajorG   A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramE minorEm
to cut him off at the knee
        A chord diagramA majorA              A chord diagramE minorEm       A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
They've rolled him and tied him by the waist,
        A chord diagramA majorA        A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD     A chord diagramE minorEm
servin' him most barbarously.

        A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramE minorEm  A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramE minorEm
They've hired men with the sharp pitchforks,
    A chord diagramG MajorG           A chord diagramA majorA      A chord diagramE minorEm
who pricked him to the heart
        A chord diagramA majorA             A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
And the loader he has served him worse than that,
         A chord diagramA majorA         A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
for he's bound him to the cart

A chord diagramA majorA  A chord diagramG MajorG A chord diagramD MajorD  A chord diagramE minorEm A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramE minorEm A chord diagramD MajorD 4x

        A chord diagramA majorA            A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
They've wheeled him around and around the field,
           A chord diagramA majorA      A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramE minorEm
'till they came unto a barn
    A chord diagramA majorA          A chord diagramE minorEm     A chord diagramG MajorG A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
And there they made a solemn oath,
   A chord diagramA majorA         A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD  A chord diagramE minorEm
on poor John Barleycorn.

        A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramE minorEm  A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramE minorEm
They've hired men with the crab-tree sticks,
   A chord diagramG MajorG       A chord diagramA majorA         A chord diagramE minorEm
to cut him skin from bone
        A chord diagramA majorA             A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramE minorEm
And the miller he has served him worse than that,
         A chord diagramA majorA            A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
for he's ground him between two stones.

    A chord diagramA majorA          A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramG MajorG   A chord diagramD MajorD     A chord diagramE minorEm
And little Sir John and the nut-brown bowl,
         A chord diagramA majorA      A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
and he's brandy in the glass
    A chord diagramA majorA          A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramG MajorG   A chord diagramD MajorD     A chord diagramE minorEm
And little Sir John and the nut-brown bowl,
           A chord diagramA majorA         A chord diagramG MajorG   A chord diagramD MajorD  A chord diagramE minorEm
proved the strongest man at last.

    A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramE minorEm   A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramE minorEm
The huntsman, he can't hunt the fox,
       A chord diagramG MajorG         A chord diagramA majorA        A chord diagramE minorEm
nor so loudly to blow his horn
        A chord diagramA majorA         A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramG MajorG      A chord diagramD MajorD   A chord diagramE minorEm
And the tinker he can't mend kettle nor pots,
    A chord diagramA majorA            A chord diagramG MajorG  A chord diagramD MajorD  A chord diagramE minorEm
without a little Barleycorn
