Traditional folk song
-4 -6 -6 -6 -7-66 -6 -6
Fair young maid all in a gar-den
-4 -6 -6 -7 -66 -6
Stange young man, pas-ser-by
-4 -4 -6 -6 -6 -6 6 5-4 4
He said, "Fair maid, will you mar-ry me?"
5 6 6 -66 -5 -4 -4
This then, sir, was her re-ply:
Oh, 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
Still no man shall marry me
What if he's in some battle slain
Or drownded in the deep salt sea
What if he's found another love
And he and his love both married be?
Well, if he's in some battle slain
I will go and mourn all on his grave
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
I'll wish them health and happiness
Where they dwell across the sea
He picked her up all in his arms
Kisses gave her: One, two, three
Said, Here am I, my own true love
I am your long-lost John Riley
