Altan - As I Roved Out


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G  C  G  D    C  G  D    C  G  D    Em

[Verse 1]
                       Bm              Em
Oh, as I roved out one bright summer's morn
     G       C          G
Down by Blackwaterside
       Em            D                C          D
I'd be gazing on the flowers that did bloom all around
       Em           Bm     C
When a pretty Irish girl I spied
          G       D    C       D
Oh, 'twas red and rosy was her cheeks
       Em     Bm      A
Golden yellow was her hair
     Em                 Bm         Em
As I clasped her by the lily-white hand
      G         Am               C     G  D
And I said, "My young sweetheart fair"


[Verse 2]
         Em                Bm   Em
There be many a good man's daughter
       G          C              G
Going around from town to town
         Em     D          C        D
There be many a good man's daughter with
    Em       Bm      C
Her hair all hanging down
           G           D           C         D
They'll be rocking the cradles the whole day long
          Em      Bm      A
Singing, "Low-la, low-la, low"
          Em                   Bm        Em
Was there ever a poor and a misfortunate girl
       G      C      G
Was as easily led as you?


[Instrumental]
G  C  G  D    C  G  D    C  G  D    Em


[Verse 3]
                                Bm      Em
Oh, that wasn't the promise you made to me
     G       C          G
Down by Blackwaterside
         Em         D           C       D
Ah, that wasn't the promise you made to me
         Em          Bm      C
When you asked me to be your bride
         G          D           C       D
Ah, that wasn't the promise you made to me
         Em             Bm        A
When you swore you'd be loyal and true
         Em                 Bm       Em
When the fishes fly and the seas run dry
       G        C          G
I'll return and I'll marry you


[Outro]
G  C  G  D    C  G  D    C  G  D     Em  (2x)
