The Four Marys

	  		Intro 
F   G   C   F 
C   G   C   G 

Chorus 
     C                     F   C 
Last night there were four Marys 
  Am                C      Dm    G 
This night there'll be but three 
          F    G          C    F 
There was Mary Seaton and Mary Beaton 
    C       G           C     G 
And Mary Carmichael and me 

verse 1 
C             F      C 
Little did my mother think 
     Am        C       Dm    G 
When first she cradled me 
     F       G      C        F 
That I would die so far from home 
   C             G       C     G 
Or hang from the gallows tree 

verse 2 
        C             F        C 
They'll tie a napkin around my eye 
    Am        C       Dm    G 
And no let me see the day 
            F         G        C          F 
And they'll never let on to my father and mother 
         C        G        C     G 
But that I'm away over the sea 

Chorus 
     C                     F   C 
Last night there were four Marys 
  Am                C      Dm    G 
This night there'll be but three 
          F    G          C    F 
There was Mary Seaton and Mary Beaton 
    C       G           C     G 
And Mary Carmichael and me

verse 3 
  D                      G         D 
I wish I could lie in my own churchyard 
  Bm        D       Em   A 
Beneath the old yew tree 
         G        A       D       G 
Where we ---- the --- and --- the --- 
   D            A           D    A 
My brothers, my sisters and me 

verse 4 
    D                   G        D 
And little care I for a nameless grave 
       Bm         D    Em   A 
As I'd hoped for eternity 
     G             A         D     G 
So I pray that the fate of a dying thief 
       D               A          D    A 
May be granted through grace unto me 

Chorus 
  D                        G   D 
Last night there were four Marys 
     Bm             D      Em   A 
This night there'll be but three 
          G    A          D    G 
There was Mary Seaton and Mary Beaton 
    D       A            D    A 
And Mary Carmichael and me

There was Mary Seaton and Mary Beaton 
    D       A            D    A
