E1 - 0-7-9-9-0-0

          E1                  B        A                          E

Flow gently, sweet Afton, among thy green braes,
  
         C#m             B              A               E

Flow gently, I'll sing thee a song in thy praise;
   
          E1     B                 A                   E

My Mary's asleep by thy murmuring stream,
  
         C#m                B         A                     E

Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her dream.


 
         E1                           B     A                            E

Thou stock-dove whose echo resounds thro' the glen,
     
    C#m                       B                    A              E

oh Ye wild whistling blackbirds in yon thorny den,
      
        E1                  B                    A                E 
Thou green-crested lapwing, thy screaming forebear,
     
    C#m              B                      A                E

oh I charge you disturb not my slumbering fair.


       C#m                     B              A                E

oh How lofty, sweet Afton, thy neighboring hills,
    
      F#m               F#m               A                    B

Far mark'd with the courses of clear winding rills,
     
        G#m      A               G#      C#m  B     A   E     

There daily I wander as noon rises high, oooh,
   
      F#m           F#m                    A             B

My flocks and my Mary's sweet cot in my eye.
 

           E1                B              A                    E

How pleasant thy banks and green valleys below,
      
          C#m           B                       A               E
 
Where wild in the woodlands the primroses blow;
      
           E1               B                      A             E

There oft as mild Ev'ning sweeps over the lea
    
      C#m                  B                       A            E

The sweet scented birk shades my Mary and me.


        

    C#m                       B                   A            E

oh Thy crystal stream, Afton, how lovely it glides,
     
       F#m            F#m                  A        B

And winds by the cot where my Mary resides,
     
        G#m             A               G#m    C#m    B

How wanton thy waters her snowy feet lave,
   
     F#m                 F#m                  A                       B

As gathering sweet flow'rets she stems thy clear wave.

    

         E1                  B        A                          E

Flow gently, sweet Afton, among thy green braes,
  
         C#m             B              A               E

Flow gently, I'll sing thee a song in thy praise;
   
          E1     B                 A                   E

My Mary's asleep by thy murmuring stream,
  
         C#m                B         A                     E

Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her dream.
