John Barbour  Great Big Sea

[G]What ails you my daughter dear
[G]your eyes are so dim
[G]have you had any sore sickness
[G]or yet been sleeping with a man

[G]I have not had any sore sickness
[G]but I know what's ailing me
[G]I thinking of my own true lov[C]e
[G]he plows the raging s[C]ea
[G]he plows the raging s[C]ea

[G]be he a lo[Am]rd or a d[C]uke or a k[D]night
[G]or a man of wea[D]lth of fa[G]me
[G]or is he one of my sailor la[C]ds
[G]come tell me now his na[C]me
[G]he is no lo[Am]rd or a d[C]uke or k[D]night
[G]or a man of wea[D]lth and fa[G]me
[G]he is one of your sailor la[C]ds
[G]and john barbour is his na[C]me
[G]now if J[Am]ohn Barbour [C]is his n[D]ame
[G]a lowly sai[D]lor man is h[G]e
[G]and if John Barbor is his na[C]me
[G]then hanged he will b[C]e
[G]than hanged he will b[C]e
[G]the king he c[Am]alls his [C]sailors [D]all
[G]by one by t[D]wo by thr[G]ee
[G]John Barbour was the first he cal[C]led
[G]but the last came was h[C]e
[G]when he c[Am]ame a tr[C]ippin do[D]wn
[G]he was clot[D]hed in all in w[G]hite
[G]his hair were like the roses r[C]ed
[G]and his teeth were ivory br[C]ite
[G]he paid t[Am]heir wages wit[C]h a s[D]mile
[G]when John Bar[D]bour he did s[G]ee
[G]if i was a woman if I were a ma[C]n
[G]then bedfellows we would b[C]e
[G]will you ma[Am]rry my dau[C]ghter Ja[D]ne
[G]and take he[D]r by the h[G]and
[G]will you come and dine with m[C]e
[G]take charge of all my la[C]nd
[G]I will ma[Am]rry your daug[C]hter Ja[D]ne
[G]and I'll tak[D]e her by the h[G]and
[G]I will come and dine with y[C]ou
[G]but to hell with all your lan[C]ds
[G]if you can gi[Am]ve her on[C]e gold pi[D]ece
[G]then I can giv[D]e her th[G]ree
[G]for I am bold John Barb[C]our
[G]and I plow the raging [C]sea
[G]I plow the raging s[C]ea
[G]I plow the raging s[C]ea
