The Blacksmith

  Am                 G         Dm        Am 
A blacksmith courted me, nine month and better 
                  G           Dm      Am 
He fairly won my heart, wrote me a letter 
          C     Am      C        Am        G 
With his hammer in his hand, he looked so clever 
   Am                           G       Am 
And if I was with my love, I'd live forever 

  Am                  G                Dm        Am 
And where is my love gone, with his cheeks like roses 
                              G           Dm      Am 
And his good black billycook on, clecked with primroses 
       C         Am      C        Am                  G 
I'm afraid the scorching sun will shine and burn his beauty 
   Am                          G      Am 
And if I was with my love, I'd do my duty 

  Am                      G             Dm       Am 
Strange news has come to town, strange news is carried 
                            G            Dm      Am 
Strange news flies up and down, that my love is married 
   C         Am        C          Am        G 
I wish them both much joy though they don't hear me 
        Am                         G          Am 
And may God reward him well, for slighting of me 

  Am                  G             Dm        Am 
What did you promise love, when you sat beside me 
                         G       Dm      Am 
You said you would marry me and not deny me 
     C        Am    C            Am             G 
If I said I'd marry you, it was only for to try you 
   Am                                 G       Am 
So bring your witness love and I'll ne'er deny you 

  Am               G         Dm      Am 
Oh witness have I none, save God Almighty 
                      G             Dm         Am 
And he'll reward you well, for the slighting of me 
     C         Am      C          Am                   G 
Her lips grew pale and white, it made her poor heart tremble 
   Am                           G       Am 
To think she loved one and he proved deceitful
