 As I Roved Out

Am EmAnd who are you, me pretty fair maid
Am EmAnd who are you, me honey?
Am EmAnd who are you, me pretty fair maid
Am EmAnd who are you, me honey?
Am GShe answered me quite modestly:
G I am me mother's darling.
AmWith me too-ry-ay
EmDi-re fol-de-diddle
AmDai-rie oh.
Am EmAnd will you come to me mother's house,
Am EmWhen the sun is shining clearly ( repeat )
Am G I'll open the door and I'll let you in
GAnd divil 'o one would hear us.
Am EmSo I went to her house in the middle of the night
Am EmWhen the moon was shining clearly ( repeat )
Am GShe opened the door and she let me in
GAnd divil the one did hear us.
Am EmShe took me horse by the bridle and the bit
Am EmAnd she led him to the stable ( repeat )
Am GSaying "There's plenty of oats for a soldier's horse,
GTo eat it if he's able."
Am EmThen she took me by the lily-white hand
Am EmAnd she led me to the table ( repeat )
Am GSaying: There's plenty of wine for a soldier boy,
GTo drink it if you're able.
Am EmThen I got up and made the bed
Am EmAnd I made it nice and aisy ( repeat )
Am GThen I got up and laid her down
GSaying: Lassie, are you able?
Am EmAnd there we lay till the break of day
Am EmAnd divil a one did hear us ( repeat )
Am GThen I arose and put on me clothes
GSaying: Lassie, I must leave you.
Am EmAnd when will you return again
Am EmAnd when will we get married ( repeat )
Am GWhen broken shells make Christmas bells
GWe might well get married.
