The Nightingale
Capo 1st Fret
(There are two words were I could not put an apostrophe in - (they are I m and we 
ll), so just put it in yourself as I have left the space).

A             D            E        A
As I went a walking one morning in May
                                     E
I met a young couple who fondly did stray
A                                     E
One was a young maid so sweet and so fair
 A                  D           E             A
And the other was a soldier and a brave grenadier

Chorus 
A                              D                E              A
And they kissed so sweet and comforting as the clung to each other
                                                        E
They went arm and arm along the road like sister and brother
A                                                        E
They went arm in arm along the road til they came to a stream
A                        D                         E             A
And they both sat down together love to hear the nightingale sing


  A               D           E           A
Well out of his knapsack he took a fine fiddle
                                                      E
And he played her such a merry tune that you ever did hear
 A                                                       E
And he played her such a merry tune that the valley did ring
 A                      D                         E            A
And they both sat down together love to hear the nightingale sing


Repeat Chorus


  A              D          E          A
Well I m off to India for seven long years
                                                     E
Drinking wines and strong whiskeys instead of cool beers
  A                                             E
And if ever I return again it will be in the spring
  A                       D                            E        A
And we ll both sit down together love to hear the nightingale sing

A                   D           E       A
Oh soldier, Oh soldier, will you marry me
                                     E
Oh no said the soldier that never can be
A                                      E
For I have a wife at home in my own country
A                  D                    E       A
And she is the sweetest thing that you ever did see
