verse 1 
   C          F            Dm         Am    Am 
As I went out walking, one morning in June 
   F             C           F              C          C 
To view the fair fields, and the valleys in bloom; 
  F              C                F              C         C 
I spied a pretty fair maid, she a-ppeared like a queen, 
G7         Am          F             Dm        Am 
With - her costly fine robes and her mantle so green  

Interlude

verse 2 
     C            F                Dm            Am      Am 
Says I, my pretty fair maid, won?t you come with me, 
      F            C            F             C       C 
We'll both join in wedlock, and married we'll be; 
       F                 C               F            C      C 
I will dress you in fine linen, you'll a-ppear like a queen, 
G7          Am          F              Dm        Am 
With - your costly fine robes and your mantle so green.

Am/F Am Am/G 

verse 3 
     C           F              Dm         Am       Am 
Says she, now my young man, you must be ex-cused, 
    F             C              F          C          C 
For I'll wed with no man, so you must be re-fused; 
       F                  C          F              C       C 
To the green woods I will wander and shun all men's view 
G7        Am         F              Dm          Am 
For - the boy I love dearly lies in famed Water-loo.

verse 4 
      C             F            Dm           Am        Am 
Well, if you're not married, say your lover's name 
  F              C            F              C          C 
I fought in that battle, so I might know the same. 
     F          C            F              C        C 
Draw near to my garment, and there you will see 
G7    Am         F               Dm        Am 
His ? name is em-broidered on my mantle so green.

Verse 5 
       C             F             Dm       Am       Am 
In the ribbon of her mantle, there I did be-hold, 
    F            C           F          C          C 
His name and his surname, in letters of gold 
      F         C        F             C          C 
Young William O'Riley, a-ppeared in my view 
G7   Am           F               Dm          Am 
He ? was my chief comrade back in famed Water-loo

Verse 6 
    C         F        Dm             Am      Am 
And 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          C 
And as I told her this story, in anguish she flew, 
G7        Am          F             Dm        Am 
And - the more that I told her, the paler she grew 

Interlude 
Am/F Am Am/G 

Verse 7 
     C            F            Dm           Am      Am 
So I smiled on my Nancy, 'twas I broke your heart, 
   F            C            F          C          C 
In your fathers garden, that day we did part 
    F           C              F          C          C 
And this is the truth, and the truth I de-clare, 
G7   Am               F         Dm          Am 
Oh ? here's your love token the gold ring I wear
