Song: JACKAROE
English folk song
Joan Baez
Key: G

5     -6 -6  7   -8   8   -8
There was a weal-thy mer-chant,
8   9   9  9  -8    8
In Lon-don he did dwell 
8   8 -6  -6  -6   6    5
He had a love-ly daugh-ter,
6     -6  -7 -6   5    5
The truth to you I'll tell 
-6  7    -7   5  5   -6   -6
Oh the truth to you I'll tell 



She had sweethearts a-plenty
And men of high degree 
There was none but Jack the sailor,
Her true love e'er could be
Oh her true love e'er could be 


Now Jackie's gone a-sailing
With trouble on his mind 
To leave his native country
And his darling girl behind
Oh, his darling girl behind.

She went into a tailor shop
And dressed in men's array 
And stepped on board a vessel
To convey herself away 
Oh, to convey herself away.

"Before you step on board, sir,
Your name I'd like to know" 
She smiled all in her countenance,
"They call me Jackaroe" 
Oh, they call me Jackaroe.

"Your waist is light and slender,
Your fingers are neat and small 
Your cheeks too red and rosy
To face the cannonball" 
Oh, to face the cannon-ball.

"I know my waist is slender,
My fingers neat and small 
But it would not make me tremble
To see ten thousand fall" 
Oh, to see ten thousand fall.

The war soon being over,
They hunted all around
And among the dead and dying
Her darling boy she found 
Oh, her darling boy she found.

She picked him up all in her arms
And carried him to the town 
And sent for a physician who
Quickly healed his wounds 
Oh, who quickly healed his wounds.

This couple they got married 
And well they did agree 
This couple they got married,
So why not you and me 
Oh, so why not you and me
