The Nightingale  The Dubliners

Capo 1st Fret
(There are two words were I could not put an apostrophe in - (they are I m and we
ll), so just put it in yourself as I have left the space).
[A]As I went a wa[D]lking one mor[E]ning in M[A]ay
I met a young couple who fondly did s[E]tray
[A]One was a young maid so sweet and so f[E]air
A[A]nd the other was a [D]soldier and [E]a brave grenad[A]ier
[A]And they kissed so sweet and co[D]mforting as the c[E]lung to each ot[A]her
They went arm and arm along the road like sister and bro[E]ther
[A]They went arm in arm along the road til they came to a st[E]ream
[A]And they both sat down to[D]gether love to hear the ni[E]ghtingale sing[A]
We[A]ll out of his kn[D]apsack he to[E]ok a fine fi[A]ddle
And he played her such a merry tune that you ever did [E]hear
A[A]nd he played her such a merry tune that the valley did r[E]ing
A[A]nd they both sat down t[D]ogether love to hear the n[E]ightingale si[A]ng
Repeat Chorus
We[A]ll I m off to I[D]ndia for se[E]ven long ye[A]ars
Drinking wines and strong whiskeys instead of cool be[E]ers
An[A]d if ever I return again it will be in the spr[E]ing
An[A]d we ll both sit down to[D]gether love to hear the night[E]ingale si[A]ng
[A]Oh soldier, Oh soldi[D]er, will you[E] marry m[A]e
Oh no said the soldier that never can[E] be
[A]For I have a wife at home in my own cou[E]ntry
[A]And she is the swee[D]test thing that you e[E]ver did [A]see
Repeat Chorus
