Em G Am Em“Oh Polly love, oh Polly, the rout has now begun,
G C G D EmAnd we must go a-marching to the beating of the drum.
G C G D EmGo dress yourself all in your best and come along with me;
Em G Em Am EmI'll take you to the cruel war in High Germany.”
Em G Am Em“Oh Willy love, oh Willy, come list what I do say,
G C G D EmMy feet they are so tender, I cannot march away.
G C G D EmAnd besides, my dearest Willy, I am with child by thee,
Em G Em Am EmNot fitted for the cruel war in High Germany.”
Em G Am Em“I'll buy for you a horse, my love, and on it you shall ride
G C G D EmAnd all my delight shall be a-riding by your side.
G C G D EmWe'll stop at every alehouse and drink when we are dry,
Em G Em Am EmWe'll be true to one another, get married by and by.”
Em G Am EmOh, cursed be them cruel wars that ever they should rise
G C G D EmAnd out of Merry England press many a man likewise.
G C G D EmThey pressed my true love from me, likewise my brothers three,
Em G Em Am EmAnd sent them to the cruel wars in High Germany.
Em G Am EmNo, my friends I do not value nor my foes I do not fear,
G C G D EmNow my love has left me I wander far and near.
G C G D EmAnd when my baby it is born and a-smiling on my knee
Em G Em Am EmI'll think on lovely Willy in High Germany.
Em G Am Em“Oh Polly love, oh Polly, the rout has now begun,
G C G D EmAnd we must go a-marching to the beating of the drum.
G C G D EmGo dress yourself all in your best and come along with me;
Em G Em Am EmI'll take you to the cruel war in High Germany.”
