John Riley

(Am)A fair young maid all (Gmaj)in her (Am)garden,
(Am)A strange young man comes (Gmaj)passing (Am)by
(Am)Saying fair maid, will you (Gmaj)marry me
(Gmaj)And this answer was her (Am)reply

No kind sir I cannot marry thee
For I've a love who sails all on the sea
He's been gone for seven years
But still no man will I marry

Well what if he's in some battle slain
Or drowneded in the deep salt sea
Or what if he's found another love
And he and his love both married be?

If he's in some battle slain
I will die, when the moon doth wane
And if he's drowned in the deep salt sea
I'll be true to his memory

And if he's found another love
And he and his love both married be
Then I wish them health and happiness
Where they dwell across the sea

He picked her up all in his arms
And kisses gave her one two and three
Saying weep no more my own true love
I am your long lost John Riley.
