[Intro]
Am Dm Am Em Am

[Verse 1]
Am Dm Am Em"Good, my lord, will you stay then about my father's house
Am Dm D Am D AmAnd walking to these gardens green in my arms I'll thee embrace
C D Am D GTen thousand times I'll kiss your mouth, make sport and let's be merry"
Am Dm D Am D Am"I thank you lady, for your kindness. Trust me, I may not stay with thee
Am Dm Am Em Am [Verse 2]
Am Dm Am EmFor I have killed the laird Johnston, I care not for the feud
Am Dm D Am D AmMy loyal heart did still incline, he was my father's death.
C D Am GBy day and night I did pursue and all on him revenged to be
Am Dm D Am D AmNow I have gotten what I long sought, trust me, I may not stay with thee
Am Dm Am Em Am [Verse 3]
Am Dm D Am EmAdieu Dumfries, my proper place, adieu, adieu Caerlaverock fair
Am Dm D Am D AmAdieu my castle of the Threem and all my buildings there
C D Am D GAdieu Lochmaben's gates so fair and the Legumshank where the birch
pops bonny
Am Dm D Am D AmAdieu my lady and my only joy, trust me, I may not stay with thee"
Am Dm Am Em Am [Verse 4]
Am Dm D Am EmNow he has taken a good gold ring whereat hang signets three
Am Dm D Am D AmSays "Take you this, my own dear love and ay have mind of me
C D Am GBut if you wed another lord while I am on the sea
Am Dm D Am D AmHis life is but a three day's lease, though I may not stay with thee"
Am Dm Am Em Am [Verse 5]
Am Dm D Am EmThe wind was fair, the ship was clear, the good Lord went away
Am Dm D Am D AmThe most part of his friends were there to give him fair convoy
C D Am GThey ate the meat they drank the wine presenting in that good Lord's sight
Am Dm D Am E AmNow he is over the floods so grey, Lord Maxwell's taken his last goodnight.
