John Barleycorn

  		      D         Am        C  G       Am A5   Am A5 
    There were three men came out of the west 
          D     C   Am G   Am A5     Am A5 
    Their fortunes for to try 
          D          Am        C  G   Am A5   Am A5 
    And these three men made a solemn vow 
         D  C  Am    G   Am A5     Am A5 
    John Barleycorn must die 
    C                                    Am       Am7  Am 
    They've plowed, they've sown, the've harrowed him in 
           C     D       Esus4         E Esus4 E 
    Threw clods upon his head 
        Dm          Am         C  G   Am A5   Am A5 
    And these three men were satisfied 
         D  C  Am    G   Am A5   Am A5 
    John Barleycorn was dead 

    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 

           D     Am        C     G   Am A5   Am A5 
    They let him lie for a very long time 
               D    C    Am     G   Am A5     Am A5 
    Till the rains from heaven did fall 
          D          Am        C  G    Am A5   Am A5 
    And little Sir John sprung up his head 
         D  C  Am  G   Am A5     Am A5 
    And so amazed them all 
    C                        Am  Am7     Am 
    They let him stand 'til mid summer's day 
             C         D        Esus4         E Esus4 E 
    'til he looked both pale and worn 
        Dm          Am            C       G   Am A5   Am A5 
    And little Sir John's grown a long, long beard 
         D  C Am  G Am A5   Am A5 
    And so become a man 


    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 


            D     Am        C      G   Am A5   Am A5 
    They've hired men with scythes so sharp 
           D   C   Am  G  Am A5     Am A5 
    To cut him off at the knee 
          D              Am      C  G   Am A5   Am A5 
    They rolled him and tied him by the waist 
            D    C   Am G    Am A5     Am A5 
    Serving him most barbarously 
    C                       Am    Am7   Am 
    They've hired men with sharp pitch forks 
           C     D        Esus4         E Esus4 E 
    Who pricked him to the heart... 
            Dm            Am         C       G   Am A5   Am A5 
    And the loader he has served him worse than that 
              D     C  Am  G   Am A5   Am A5 
    For he's bound him to the cart 

    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 


             D             Am        C    G       Am A5   Am A5 
    They've wheeled him around and around in the field 
               D   C Am G  Am A5     Am A5 
    'til they came onto a barn 
         D          Am     C  G   Am A5   Am A5 
    And there they made a solemn oath 
         D   C    Am G  Am A5     Am A5 
    On poor John Barleycorn 
    C                            Am  Am7   Am 
    They've hired men with the crab tree sticks 
        C       D        Esus4         E Esus4 E 
    to cut him skin from bone 
            Dm             Am         C      G   Am A5   Am A5 
    And the miller he has served him worse than that 
                D       C    Am  G   Am A5   Am A5 
    For he's ground him between two stones 


    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 
    D   C  G   Am A5      Am A5 

          D         Am           C  G      Am A5   Am A5 
    And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl 
            D    C  Am  G   Am A5     Am A5 
    And he's brandy in the glass 
          D          Am          C  G      Am A5   Am A5 
    And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl 
         D           Am   G  Am A5     Am A5 
    Proved the strongest man at last 
    C                       Am  Am7   Am 
    The huntsman, he can't hunt the fox 
           C      D        Esus4         E Esus4 E 
    Nor so loudly blow his horn 
            Dm        Am         C       G   Am A5   Am A5 
    And the Tinker he can't mend kettle nor pots 
            D        Am  G   A5 
    Without a little Barlycorn
