The[Em]y came down fr[Bm]om the mountain
They?d [Em]strayed too long from the foun[Bm]tain
[Em]And all the while
[Em]All the while they[Bm] longed for us
[Bm]But I won't be[Em]tray
No I[Bm] won't be[Em]tray
No I [Bm]won't be[Em]tray our [Bm]water
[Bm]No I won't be[Em]tray
No I[Bm] won't be[Em]tray
No I[Bm] won't be[Em]tray our [Bm]water
Till the [D]water's [A]all long [Em]gone
(Intro)
[Em]And you, my sweet[Bm] flower
[Em]And how you grew more sweet by[Bm] the hour
[Em]And loathe was I
[Em]Loathe was I to lose [Bm]you
[Bm]My tender[Em] rose
My[Bm] limber[Em] rose
My[Bm] slender[Em] loping [Bm]daughter
[Bm]My tender[Em] rose
My[Bm] slende[Em]r rose
My[Bm] limber[Em] loping [Bm]daughter
But my d[D]aughter?s long[A], long [Em]gone
(Intro)
*Fingerpick the first two lines, strum after:
They[Em] came down from[Bm] the mountain
They'd[Em] strayed too long from[Bm] the fountain
[Em]O my girl, o my love I've[Bm] lost you
[Bm]But I won't be[Em]tray
No I[Bm] won't be[Em]tray
No I [Bm]won't be[Em]tray our [Bm]water
[Bm]No I won't be[Em]tray
No I[Bm] won't be[Em]tray
No I[Bm] won't be[Em]tray our [Bm]water
Till the [D]water's all[A] long[Em] gone
Intro X4 (with some variation on the tab)
