CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
F   G   F   G   Am

[Verse 1]
                     G             F                    Em
The trees, they grow high, and the leaves, they do grow green
G                   D              Em
Many is the time my true love I've seen
F       G      Am               Em
Many an hour I watched him all alone
     G                    F
He's young but he's daily growing


[Verse 2]
Am           G              F             Em
Father, dear father, you've done me great wrong
G                        D              Em
You have married me to a boy who is too young
F          G          Am            Em
I am twice twelve and he is but fourteen
     G                    F
He's young but he's daily growing


[Verse 3]
Am             G              F           Em
Daughter, dear daughter, I've done you no wrong
G                       D            Em
I have married you to a great lord's son
    F            G                Am            Em
And he will be a man for you when I am dead and gone
     G                    F
He's young but he's daily growing


[Interlude]
G   F   D  G


[Verse 4]
Am           G          F       Em
Father, dear father, if you see fit
      G                        D           Em
We'll send him to college for another year yet
     F          G      Am             Em
I'll tie a blue ribbon all around his head
   G                               F
To let the maidens know that he is married


[Verse 5]
    Am        G               F               Em
One day I was looking over my father's castle wall
  G                  D              Em
I spied all the boys playing with a ball
F               G                Am             Em
And my own true love, he was the flower of them all
     G                    F
He's young but he's daily growing


[Interlude]
G   F   D  G


[Verse 6]
       Am           G              F              Em
And so early in the morning at the dawning of the day
     G                           D                   Em
They went into a hayfield for to have some sport and play
    F             G              Am            Em
And what they did there, oh, she never would declare
        G                            F
But she never more complained of his growing


[Verse 7]
Am            G           F             Em
At the age of fourteen he was a married man
G                          D            Em
At the age of fifteen, the father of my son
F             G            Am            Em
At the age of sixteen, his grave, it was green
    G                           F
And death had put an end to his growing


[Verse 8]
     Am               G             F              Em
I'll buy my love some flannel, I'll make my love a shroud
    G                             D                   Em
And every stitch I put in it, the tears, they'll pour down
    F              G                  Am               Em
And every stitch I put in it, how the tears, they will flow
      G                          F
Cruel fate has put an end to his growing


[Outro]
Am      G  F  Em  G    D  Em  F  G  Am  Em  G    D
