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 AAs I went a walking one morning in May
EI met a young couple who fondly did stray
A EOne was a young maid so sweet and so fair
A D E AAnd the other was a soldier and a brave grenadier
Chorus
A D E AAnd they kissed so sweet and comforting as the clung to each other
EThey went arm and arm along the road like sister and brother
A EThey went arm in arm along the road til they came to a stream
A D E AAnd they both sat down together love to hear the nightingale sing
A D E AWell out of his knapsack he took a fine fiddle
EAnd he played her such a merry tune that you ever did hear
A EAnd he played her such a merry tune that the valley did ring
A D E AAnd they both sat down together love to hear the nightingale sing
Repeat Chorus
A D E AWell I m off to India for seven long years
EDrinking wines and strong whiskeys instead of cool beers
A EAnd if ever I return again it will be in the spring
A D E AAnd we ll both sit down together love to hear the nightingale sing
A D E AOh soldier, Oh soldier, will you marry me
EOh no said the soldier that never can be
A EFor I have a wife at home in my own country
A D E AAnd she is the sweetest thing that you ever did see
Repeat Chorus
