Edwin Steeleye Span
This can be played with easier chords by transposing down 2 half steps.
Come [Gm]all ye [D]wild young [Gm]people and [D7]listen to my [Gm]song
I will unf[D]old con[Gm]cerning gold that [D7]guides so many [Gm]wrong
Young E[Bb]mma was a [F]servant maid who [Gm]loved a sailor b[D]old
Who [Gm]ploughed the [D]main much gold to[Gm] gain for his [D7]love so we've been [Gm]told.
He [Gm]ploughed the [D]main for [Gm]seven years and [D7]then return-ed [Gm]home
As soon as [D]he set [Gm]foot on shore un[D7]to his love did [Gm]go
He [Bb]went unto young [F]Emma's house his [Gm]gold all for to [D]show
That [Gm]he had [D]gained upon the [Gm]main all in the [D7]lowlands [Gm]low.

Young [Gm]Edwin [D]he sat [Gm]drinking till [D7]time to go to[Gm] bed
He little [D]thought a [Gm]sword that night would [D7]part his body and [Gm]head
Young [Bb]Edwin he got [F]into bed and [Gm]scarcely was asl[D]eep
When [Gm]Emil[D]y's cruel [Gm]parents soft in[D7]to his room did [Gm]creep
They [Gm]stabbed him, [D]dragged him [Gm]out of bed and [D7]to the sea did [Gm]go
They sent his [D]body [Gm]floating, down [D7]to the lowlands [Gm]low
"Oh [Bb]father, where's the [F]stranger came [Gm]here last night to [D]lay?"
"Oh [Gm]he is [D]dead no [Gm]tales can tell" the [D7]father he did [Gm]say.
The [Gm]fishes [D]of the [Gm]ocean swim [D7]o'er my lover's [Gm]breast
His body [D]rolls in [Gm]motion I [D7]hope his soul's at [Gm]rest
The [Bb]shells upon the [F]sea shore [Gm]rolling to and [D]fro
Remi[Gm]nd me [D]of young [Gm]Edwin that [D7]ploughed the lowlands [Gm]low
So [Gm]many a [D]day she [Gm]passed away and [D7]tried to ease her [Gm]mind
Crying "Oh my [D]friends, my [Gm]love is gone and [D7]I am left be[Gm]hind"
And [Bb]Emma broken [F]hearted was to [Gm]Bedlam forced to [D]go
Her [Gm]shrieks were [D]for young [Gm]Edwin that [D7]ploughed the lowlands [Gm]low.
