Lady Mary Anne  Karan Casey

[C]Lady Mary Anne looked over the castle wall
There she saw twa bonny laddies playing at the [G]ball
The [C]youngest of them, he was the fairest of all
Her [G]bonny boy, he's young and he's growing [C]O
[C]Father, dearest father, you have done me a great wrong
To go and get me married to a lad who is so [G]young
[C]He being only sixteen years and I am twenty one
My [G]bonny boy, he's young and he's growing [C]O
[C]Daughter, dearest daughter, I have done you no wrong
To go and get you married to a lad who is so [G]young
[C]He will be a match for you when I am dead and gone
Your [G]bonny boy, he's young and he's growing [C]O
[C]Oh father, dearest father, then I'll tell you what we'll do
We'll send my love to college for another year or [G]two
[C]All around his college cap we'll bind the ribbons blue
To [G]let the ladies know that he's married [C]O
[F] [C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [G]  
Well, [C]young Charlie Cochrane was the sprout of an oak
Blithe, aye and bonny and straight was his [G]neck
The [C]sun, when it shone, it was all for his sake
[G]He will be the pride of the forest [C]O
[C]Lady Mary Anne was the flower among the dew
Blithe aye and bonny and straight was her [G]shoe
The [C]longer she blossomed, well, the sweeter she grew
The [G]lily in the bud will be bonnier [C]O
[C]Summer, it is gone when the leaves, they were green
Happy were the days that both you and I have [G]seen
[C]Far happier days, well, I trust will come again
My [G]bonny boy, he's young and he's growing [C]O
[F] [C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [G]  
Oh [C]well, at the age of sixteen years, he was a married man
At the age of seventeen, the father of his [G]son
[C]At the age of eighteen, o'er his grave the grass grew green
Cruel [G]death had put an end to his growing [C]O
[C]I will weave my love a shroud of the ornamental brown
Whilst I am a-weaving it, the tears, they will fall [G]down
For [C]once I had a true love, but now he's lying low
I'll [G]nurse his bonny boy while he's growing [C]O
[C]Growing O
