Pretty Caroline C F C G7 C One morning in the month of May when brightly shone the sun, C F C G7 C Upon the banks of Tilbury stream there sat a lovely one, F G7 F Am She did appear a goddess fair, her dark brown hair did shine, C F C G7 C It shaded the neck and bosom white of pretty Caroline. C F C G7 C I said to her - 'My pretty maid, do you remember me? C F C G7 C I am the jolly sailor which ploughed the Regency, F G7 F Am And for courting of a pretty maid her parents did combine, C F C G7 C They sent me off in a man of war from pretty Caroline. C F C G7 C It's seven long years since I was bound all for to save the King, C F C G7 C Where rattling cannons roared around, which made the deep sea ring, F G7 F Am Here's gold and silver I have brought and freely would resign, C F C G7 C Here's gold and silver for a ring, 'tis all for Caroline.' C F C G7 C This maiden fair 'twixt joy and woe away from him she flew - C F C G7 C 'Oh stand away without delay, unless you tell me true; F G7 F Am Produce the ring, the braided ring, and a lock of hair of mine, C F C G7 C No mortal man shall e'er deceive this faithful Caroline.' C F C G7 C This braided hair and ring of gold young William did her show, C F C G7 C Then Caroline and William unto some church did go, F G7 F Am Down in some lofty mansion so splendid they did shine, C F C G7 C The sailor blessed the month of May he met with Caroline.
