One [C]evenin' for pleasure
I [F]rambled to view the [C]fair fields [G]all a[C]lone
[C]Down by the banks of [F]Loch Erin
Where [G]beauty an' pleasure were [C]known
I [Am]spied a fair maid at her [Em]labor
Which [Am]caused me to stay for a [G]while
An' I [C]thought of a [Am]goddess of [Em]beauty
[F]Bloomin' bright [Fm]star of Bright [C]Isle.
I [C]humbled my[Am]self to her [Em]beauty
"[F]Fair ma[G]iden where do y[C]ou belong?
Are you [C]from [Am]heaven de[Em]scended
[Dm]Abidin' in Cupid's fair [G7]throne."
"Y[Am]oung man I will tell y[Em]ou a secret
It's [Am]true I'm a maid that is [Em]poor
And to [C]part from my vows and my [Am]promise
Is [F]more that my heart can en[Fm]dure.
There[C]fore I'll re[Em/B]main at my [Am]service
And go [Em]through all my hardship and [G]toil
And [C]wait for the [Em/B]lad that has [Am]left me
All a[F]lone on the [G]banks of Belle [C]Isle."

"Y[C]oung maid[Am]en I wish no[Em]t to banter
'T'is [F]true I've come [G]here in dis[C]guise
I came [C]here to ful[Em/B]fill our last [Am]promise
An' [Dm]hoped to give you a sur[G]prise
I [Am]own you're a maid I love [G]dearly
An' you've [Am]been in my [Em]heart all the [G]while
For [C]me there is [Em/B]no other [Am]damsel
Than my [F]bloomin' bright [G]star of Belle [C]Isle."
