Tuning: Standard EADGBe
I [G]had entered into a marriage
In[G] the summer of my twenty-first year
An[G]d the bells rang for our wedding
On[G]ly now do I remember it clear
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
No[G] more a rake and no more a bachelor
I [G]was wedded and it whetted my thirst
Un[G]til her womb started spilling out babies
On[G]ly then did I reckon my curse
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
Fi[G]rst came Isaiah with his crinkled little fingers
Th[G]en came Charlotte and that wretched girl Dawn
Ug[G]ly Myfanwy died on delivery
Me[G]rcifully taking her mother along
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
Wh[G]at can one do when one is a widower
Sh[G]amefully saddled with three little pests?
Al[G]l that I wanted was the freedom of a new life
So[G] my burden I began to divest
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
Ch[G]arlotte I buried after feeding her foxglove
Da[G]wn was easy, she was drowned in the bath
Is[G]aiah fought but was easily bested
Bu[G]rned his body for incurring my wrath
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
An[G]d that's how I came your humble narrator
To[G] be living so easy and free
Ex[G]pect that you think that I should be haunted
Bu[G]t it never really bothers me
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht[Em]
Al[Am]right,[Cm] alri[Gm]ght, [Em]alrig[Gm]ht [Em]
[Am]
