[Intro]
D G D G D G D G D G D G


[Verse 1]
GAs I walked out one morning
CGoing to Carmarthen Fair
GI spied a pretty maiden
DWith the sunlight in her hair
GHer way was so delightful
CHer voice rang like a bell
GAnd as I over-took her
D GI asked if she was well
[Chorus]
DLay down your brethyn shawl my love
G CI swear it is no joke
GAnd I'll tell to you the story of
D GThe Old Carmarthen Oak
[Verse 2]
GAs we approached Carmarthen
CThe girl at me did stare
GAnd she asked me why I raised my hat
DTo a tree so old and bare
GSo I told her of the legend
CIf the tree should e'er come down
GThere'd be a great disaster
D GAnd Carmarthen would be drowned
[Chorus]
DLay down your brethyn shawl my love
G CI swear it is no joke
GAnd I'll tell to you the story of
D GThe Old Carmarthen Oak
[Verse 3]
GThen she started laughing
CMy face grew very red
GAnd she said that only fools believed
DWhat old Welsh legends said
GHer laughter was contagious
CFor the truth to you I'll tell
GBy the time I reached the market place
D GI began to laugh as well
[Chorus]
DLay down your brethyn shawl my love
G CI swear it is no joke
GAnd I'll tell to you the story of
D GThe Old Carmarthen Oak
[Verse 4]
GAs I sit here by my fireside
CIt's the autumn of my life
GAnd the lovely girl I met that day
DIs now my darling wife
GOh I have a lovely daughter
CAnd a son to push my yoke
GAnd all because I raised my hat
D GTo the Old Carmarthen Oak
[Chorus]
DLay down your brethyn shawl my love
G CI swear it is no joke
GAnd I'll tell to you the story of
D GThe Old Carmarthen Oak
