Jack-a-roe

  		Am                  C                          E 
There was a wealthy merchant, in London he did dwell, 
  
   Am              C             F                  C 
He had a beautiful daughter, the truth to you we'll tell, 
  
Am      E                  Am    
Oh, the truth to you we'll tell. 

Am                     C                      E 
She had sweethearts a-plenty and men of high degree, 

    Am                C          F              C 
But none but Jack the sailor her true love ever be, 

Am      E              Am 
Oh, her true love ever be. 
  
Am              C                           E     
Jackie's gone a-sailing with trouble on his mind, 

     Am              C               F            C             
He's left his native country and his darling girl behind, 

Am      E            Am  
Oh, his darling girl behind. 

Am                        C                         E 
She went down to a tailor shop and dressed in man's array, 

    Am               C          F                C 
She climbed aboard a vessel and conveyed herself away, 

Am           E       Am 
Oh, conveyed herself away. 

Am                       C                          E  
Before you get on board, sir, our name we'd like to know, 

    Am            C                 F       C 
She smiled on her countenance, they call me Jack-a-Roe, 

Am       E        Am 
Oh, they call me Jack-a-Roe. 

Am                  C                              E  
I see your waist is slender, your fingers they are small, 

     Am                 C       F        C  
Your cheeks too red and rosy to face the cannonball, 

Am     E        Am 
Oh to face the cannonball. 

Am                    C                            E  
I know my waist's too slender, my fingers they are small, 

    Am                   C          F                C  
But it would not make me tremble to see ten thousand fall, 

Am     E                Am  
Oh to see ten thousand fall. 
  
Am                 C                        E 
The war soon being over she went and looked around, 

           Am         C         F               C 
Among the dead and wounded her darling boy she found, 

Am      E               Am 
Oh her darling boy she found. 
  
Am                          C                       E   
She picked him up on in her arms and carried him to town, 

     Am        C            F                C  
She sent for a physician to quickly heal his wounds, 

Am            E        Am    
Oh to quickly heal his wounds. 
  
Am                   C                          E  
This couple they got married, so well did they agree, 

     Am              C           F               C  
This couple they got married, so why not you and me? 

Am         E       Am 
Oh why not you and me?
