Fairport Convention – Banks Of The Sweet Primroses chords

G   C  D  x4

C DAs I walked out on a midsummer's morning
G C DFor to view the fields and to take the air
G C DDown by the banks of the sweet primroses
G C D GThere I beheld a most love lie fair
C DThree short steps, I stepped up to her
G C DNot knowing her as she passed me by
G C DI stepped up to her, thinking for to view her
G C D GShe appeared to be like some virtuous bride
C DI says, "Fair maid, where are you going
G C DAnd what's the occasion of all your grief?
G C DI will make you as happy as any lady
G C D GIf you will grant to me one small relief"
[Instrumental] G C D x4 G [Verse]
C D"Stand off, stand off, you're a false deceiver
G C DYou are a false deceitful man, I know
G C D'Tis you that has caused my poor heart to wander
G C D GAnd in your comfort lies no refrain"
C D"So I'll go down to some lonesome valley
G C DWhere no man on earth shall there me find
G C DWhere the pretty little small birds do change their voices
G C D GAnd every moment blows blusterous wind"
C DSo come all young men who go a-sailing
G C DPray pay attention to what I say
G C DFor there's many a dark and a cloudy morning
G C D GTurns out to be a sunshiny day
[Outro] G C D G
