There Was A Lady chords
Relativity 1986 *

A DThere was a lady in her father's garden.
A F#m DA brisk young sailor came passing by;
A DHe stood awhile and he gazed upon her
A F#m D AAnd he said, "Young lady, won't you marry I?"
D F#m DI'm not a lady but a poor wee girl
A F#m DAnd a poor wee girl of low degree.
A DTherefore, young man, you may try some other,
A F#m D AFor a servant girl I'm not fit to thee.
D F#m DOh, I have houses and great big living
A F#m DAnd plenty money for to set you free,
A DIf you'll come home, I'll make you my own
A F#m D AAnd you'll have servants to wait on thee.
It's seven years since I had a sweetheart And seven more since I did him see. Seven years I will wait upon him, For if he's alive he'll come home to me. It's seven years since you had a sweetheart And seven more since you did him see Seven more you will wait upon him -- Perhaps this young man you might never see. If he's sick I wish him better; Or if he's dead I wish him rest; But if he's alive I will wait upon him Forty years the young man that I love best. He put his hand into his pockets, His lily white fingers being thin and small, And up he came and he pulls a gold ring And when she saw it, she damn did fall. He lift'd her up into his arms And gave her kisses quite tenderly, Saying, "I'm your young and single sailor And been many years on the ocean tossed." Well, if you're my young and single sailor, Your face and features seem quite strange to me. But seven years makes great alteration And the raging seas between you and I. So come all ye fair and tender maidens, Don't slight your sailors whilst they're at sea For when they come home, they'll make you their own And they'll bring you o'er to Americay. * Alternate: Capo II A = G D = C F#m = Em Set8
