Blow The Candles Out

	  		    Gm        Dm          Gm        A#       Dm     Gm 
When I was apprenticed in London, I went to see my dear 
     Gm      Dm         Gm        A#           Dm          Gm 
The candles all were burning, the moon shone bright and clear 
    A#                                            D                             
I knocked upon her window to ease her out of her pain 
     Gm  Dm     Gm     A#          D             Gm 
She rose up to let me in, then barred the door again 

Gm           Dm    Gm           A#   Dm     Gm 
I like well your behavior and this I often say 
   Gm    Dm       Gm         A#    Dm   Gm 
I cannot rest contented when I am far away 
      A#                                      D 
The roads they are so muddy, we cannot walk about 
    Gm     Dm       Gm   A#          D              Gm 
So roll me in your arms, Love, and blow the candles out 

      Gm    Dm        Gm        A#     Dm      Gm 
Your father and your mother in yonder room do lie 
   Gm      Dm   Gm         A#     Dm      Gm 
A-hugging one another, so why not you and I? 
   A#                                     D 
A-hugging one another, without a fear or doubt 
    Gm     Dm      Gm     A#         D              Gm 
So roll me in your arms, Love, and blow the candles out 

    Gm        Dm        Gm        A#      Dm     Gm 
I pray thee speak more softly of what we have to do 
      Gm      Dm         Gm            A#        Dm      Gm 
Lest that our noise of talking should make our pleasure rue                   
       A#                                            D 
The streets they are so nigh, Love, the people walk about 
      Gm      Dm      Gm   A#        D               Gm 
They may peep in and spy, Love, so blow the candles out 

    Gm      Dm      Gm              A#            Dm   Gm 
And if we prove successful, Love, please name it after me 
  Gm      Dm        Gm               A#     Dm       Gm 
Treat it neat and kiss it sweet and daft it on your knee 
      A#                                          D 
When my three years are over, my time it will be out 
    Gm     Dm      Gm      A#      D                 Gm 
And I will pay my debt to you by blowing the candles out.
