Blackwaterside Chords

CAPO: 4th Fret
Original Key: F#
[Verse 1]
            D       G        D
One evening fair to take the air
     C G          D
Down by Blackwaterside
        G      D    G     D
'Twas a-gazing all around me
         C G         D
That the Irish lad I spied
[Verse 2]
                        G        D
All through the part of dark the night
       C  G             D
We did lie in sport and play
          G          D        G            D
When this young man arose and gathered his clothes
         C   G            D
Saying, "Fare thee well today"
[Verse 3]
                                G       D
That's not the promise that you gave to me
     C  G            D
When you lay upon my breast
          G         D               G     D
You could make me believe with your lying words
         C  G            D
That the sun rose in the west
D       G   D    C   G   D
[Verse 4]
                         G        D
Go home, go home to your father's garden
   C   G              D
Go home and weep your fill
    G             D      G  D
And think on your own misfortune
            C G                 D
You brought on with your wanton will
[Verse 5]
                               G          D
For there's not a girl in this whole wide world
   C G           D
As easily led as I
         G          D           G        D
And when fishes can fly and the seas run dry
      C   G                  D   C   D
It is then that you'll marry I
      C   G                  D
It is then that you'll marry I
