Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Well met well met my own true love

I've just returned from the salt salt sea

I could have married the King's daughter dear
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
She would have married me
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
But I have forsaken her crowns of gold
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
All for the love of thee



[Verse 3]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Well if you could have married the King's daughter dear
G chordG Am chordAm
I'm sure you are to blame
C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
For I am married to a house carpenter
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
And find him a nice young man

Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Oh will you forsake your house carpenter
G chordG Am chordAm
And go along with me
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
I'll take you to where the grass grows green

To the banks of the salt salt sea

Well if I should forsake my house carpenter

And go along with thee
C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
What have you got to maintain me on
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
And keep me from poverty



[Verse 6]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Six ships six ships all out on the sea
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Seven more upon dry land
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
One hundred and ten all brave sailor men
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Will be at your command


[Verse 7]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
She picked up her own wee babe
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Kisses gave him three
C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
Said Stay right here with my house carpenter
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
And keep him good company


[Verse 8]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Then she putted on her rich attire
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
So glorious to behold
C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
And as she trod along her way
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
She shone like the glittering gold



[Verse 9]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Well they'd not been gone but about two weeks
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
I know it was not three
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
When this fair lady began to weep
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
She wept most bitterly


[Verse 10]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Ah why do you weep my fair young maid
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Weep it for your golden store
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
Or do you weep for your house carpenter
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Who never you shall see anymore

[Verse 11]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
I do not weep for my house carpenter
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Or for any golden store
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
I do weep for my own wee babe
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Who never I shall see anymore


[Verse 12]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Well they'd not been gone but about three weeks
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
I'm sure it was not four
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
Our gallant ship sprang a leak and sank
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Never to rise anymore


[Verse 13]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
One time around spun our gallant ship
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Two times around spun she
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
Three times around spun our gallant ship
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
And sank to the bottom of the sea


[Verse 14]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
What hills what hills are those my love
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
That rise so fair and high
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
Those are the hills of heaven my love
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
But not for you and I


[Verse 15]
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
And what hills what hills are those my love
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Those hills so dark and low
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG Em chordEm
Those are the hills of hell my love
Am chordAm G chordG Am chordAm
Where you and I must go
