G7  Am F Dm Am Am/F Am Am/G

[Verse 1]
C F Dm Am AmAs I went out walking, one morning in June
F C F C CTo view the fair fields, and the valleys in bloom;
F C F C CI spied a pretty fair maid, she a-ppeared like a queen,
G7 Am F Dm AmWith - her costly fine robes and her mantle so green 
[Interlude] Am/F Am Am/G [Verse 2]
C F Dm Am AmSays I, my pretty fair maid, won’t you come with me,
F C F C CWe'll both join in wedlock, and married we'll be;
F C F C CI will dress you in fine linen, you'll a-ppear like a queen,
G7 Am F Dm AmWith - your costly fine robes and your mantle so green.
[Interlude] Am/F Am Am/G [Verse 3]
C F Dm Am AmSays she, now my young man, you must be ex-cused,
F C F C CFor I'll wed with no man, so you must be re-fused;
F C F C CTo the green woods I will wander and shun all men's view
G7 Am F Dm AmFor - the boy I love dearly lies in famed Water-loo.
[Instrumental] C F Dm Am Am F C F C C F C F C C G7 Am F Dm Am Am/F Am Am/G [Verse 4]
C F Dm Am AmWell, if you're not married, say your lover's name
F C F C CI fought in that battle, so I might know the same.
F C F C CDraw near to my garment, and there you will see
G7 Am F Dm AmHis – name is em-broidered on my mantle so green.
[Interlude] Am/F Am Am/G [Verse 5]
C F Dm Am AmIn the ribbon of her mantle, there I did be-hold,
F C F C CHis name and his surname, in letters of gold
F C F C CYoung William O'Riley, a-ppeared in my view
G7 Am F Dm AmHe – was my chief comrade back in famed Water-loo
[Interlude] Am/F Am Am/G [Verse 6]
C F Dm Am AmAnd as he lay dying, I heard his last cry
F C F C C’If you were here lovely Nancy I'd be willing to die’
F C F C CAnd as I told her this story, in anguish she flew,
G7 Am F Dm AmAnd - the more that I told her, the paler she grew
[Interlude] Am/F Am Am/G [Verse 7]
C F Dm Am AmSo I smiled on my Nancy, 'twas I broke your heart,
F C F C CIn your fathers garden, that day we did part
F C F C CAnd this is the truth, and the truth I de-clare,
G7 Am F Dm AmOh – here's your love token the gold ring I wear
