Lily Of Barbary

	  		
Intro Bm D (4x) 


Verse 

Bm               D                  Bm                
Just a cabin boy on a Whitby trader, Mediterranean Sea,  
D 
Bound for Malta strand 
Bm                  G 
The 15th day of June 1680,  
D          A           G 
The day my second life began. 


Verse 

Bm               D                  Bm 
We were caught and boarded by a Moorish galley,  
                   D 
The battle short, the outcome clear 
Bm                       G                  
My shipmates died in pain, only I was spared  
D          A           G 
And sold in a market in Algiers

A G They say the fates of men are written on the wind A G no-one knows where they may blow Bm D A G I was taken in chains by a Barbary corsair D G A it was in Barbary I found G my Lily fair.

FILL FOR IN-BETWEEN VERSE and Chorus (G chord into A chord) Verse Bm D Bm But luck was with me, I found a kindly master D Learned to serve him and I served him well Bm G And with my new name, clothes and language, D A G I thought little of my homeland, truth to tell Bm D Bm And when my master died his testament did free me, D With a gift of gold besides Bm G I became a merchant, a man of consequence, D A G With everything a rich mans life provides

A G They say the fates of men are written on the wind A G no-one knows where they may blow Bm D A G I was taken in chains by a Barbary corsair D G A it was in Barbary I found G my Lily fair.

Verse Bm D Bm Then one day in the slavers market, wide-eyed and trembling, D There among the goods on show Bm G A frightened Cornish girl, snatched from hearth and home, D A G And pity in my heart did overflow Bm D Bm So I sent for gold and I bought her freedom, D Gave her shelter in my home Bm G And in a few short weeks, love between us grew, D A G From each others side we swore we'd never roam

A G They say the fates of men are written on the wind A G no-one knows where they may blow Bm D A G I was taken in chains by a Barbary corsair D G A it was in Barbary I found G my Lily fair.

Verse Bm D Bm But she missed her home, she missed her family, D Missed the deep green hills of England's shore Bm G So I knew I must leave my home of twenty years, D A G For I couldn't live without her anymore Bm D Bm Now before the wind, bound for northern waters, D Watching Barbary's coast subside Bm G Though no man may know just what the future holds, D A G I'll sail with Lily by my side
tabchorus
A G They say the fates of men are written on the wind A G no-one knows where they may blow Bm D A G I was taken in chains by a Barbary corsair D G A it was in Barbary I found G my Lily fair.
