verse 1  
  Am                 G        Em         Am 
A blacksmith courted me, nine months and better 
   Am            G         Em         Am 
He fairly won my heart, he wrote me a letter 
         C             Em       Am        G      
With his hammer in his hand, he looked so clever 
       Am             Em    C               Am 
And if I were with my love, I would live forever 


verse 2  
    Am               G              Em          Am 
'O, where is my love gone, with his cheeks like roses? 
      Am              G    Em            Am 
He is gone across the sea, gathering primroses 
     C                 Em        Am                  G 
I'm afraid the shining sun might burn and scorch his beauty 
       Am             Em    C             Am 
And if I were with my love, I would do my duty 


verse 3  
         Am              G             Em        Am 
'Strange news is come to town, strange news is a-carried 
       Am                 G            Em        Am 
Strange news flies up and down that my love is a-married 
     C                   Em   Am                G 
O, I wish them both much joy, though they don't hear me 
       Am             Em    C             Am 
And if I were with my love, I would do my duty 


verse 4  
         Am              G  Em             Am 
'O, what did you promise me when you lay beside me? 
    Am               G       Em    Am 
You said you'd marry me, and not deny me.' 
      C              Em         Am      G 
'If I said I'd marry you, 'twas only to try you 
   Am                  Em        C          Am 
So bring your witness, love, and I'll not deny you.' 


Verse 5  
    Am             G         Em    Am 
'O, witness have I none save god almighty 
        Am            G            Em           Am 
And may he reward you well for the slighting of me.' 
    C                  Em      Am                  G 
Her lips grew pale and wan, it made her poor heart tremble 
       Am                  Em       C           Am 
For to think she had loved one, and he proved deceitful 


Verse 6  
  Am                 G        Em         Am 
A blacksmith courted me, nine months and better 
   Am            G         Em         Am 
He fairly won my heart, he wrote me a letter 
         C             Em       Am        G      
With his hammer in his hand, he looked so clever 
       Am             Em    C               Am 
And if I were with my love, I would live forever
