           F               G 
An earthly nooris sits and spins 
            F               G 
And aye she sings ba lilley wain 
         C          G    F         G

Far less the land that he bides in"

And he was there at her bedfoot 
              F                      G 
And a grumlie guest, I'm sure, 'twas he 
         C       G      F         G 
Sayin', "Here am I, thy bairn's father

And I am a Silkie in the sea 
    C        G       F        G 
But when I'm far and far frae land

Then he's taen oot a purse o' gold

"For it'll come to pass on a summer's day 
                    F               G 
When the sun shines bright on every stane 
          C        G       F         G 
That I'll come and tak' my bonny wee son

And teach him how to swim the fame"

"And you shall marry a gunner good 
            F                      G 
And a proud gunner, I'm sure he'll be 
        C          G         F       G 
But the very first shot that e'er he fires 
      F         C          F       G  
He'll kill both your young son and me"

        F            G 
"I am a man upon the land 
           F             G 
And I am a Silkie in the sea 
    C        G       F        G 
But when I'm far and far frae land 
   F       C     F        G    
My home it is in Sule Skerry____"
