-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
“Well met, well met,” said an old true love,
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
“Well met, well met,” said he.
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
“I’ve just returned from the salt, salt sea,
5 5 -4 -5 -6 6 5 4 -4
And it’s all for the l-ove of thee.”

-6 -6 6 7 -7-6 -5 5 -4
“Come in, come in, m-y own true love,
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
And have a sit with me.
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
It’s been three-fourths of near ten, long years
5 5 -4 -5 -6 6 5 4 -4
S-ince together w-e have been.”

-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
“I can’t come in and I can’t sit down,
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
I’ve but a moment’s time.
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
They say you’ve married a house carpenter,
5 5 -4 -5-6 6 5 4 -4
And your heart w-ill nev-er be mine.”

-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
“I could have wed the king’s daughter fair,
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
she would have married me.
-55 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
But I have forsaken her crowns of gold,
5 5 -4 -5 -6 6 5 4 -4
And it’s all for the l-ove of thee.”

-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
“Will you forsake your house carpenter
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
And go along with me?
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
I’ll take you to where there’s a land so fair
5 5 -4 -5 -6 6 5 4 -4
on the banks of the d-eep blue sea.”

-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
She held her child, her own precious babe
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
And kisses gave it three.
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
Saying, “Stay right here, my darling little babe,
5 5 -4 -5 -6 6 5 4 -4
A-nd keep your Pa c-om-pan-y.”

-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
They had not been on the ship two weeks,
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
I’m sure it was not three,
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 5 4
‘Til his true love began to weep and mourn,
5 5 -4 -5-6 6 5 4 -4
And she wept m-ost b-it-ter-ly.

-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
“She would not hear of the land so fair
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
The life she had in store
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
Sh-e mourned for her babe and house carpenter,
5 5 -4 -5 -6 6 5 4 -4
Whose faces she’d s-ee no more”

-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6 -5 5 -4
They had not been on the sea three weeks,
-6 -6 6 7 -7 -6
I’m sure it was not four,
-5 5 -4 -4 -6 -6 -6 6 6 5 4
Th-ere came a leak in the hold of the ship,
5 5 -4 -5 -6 6 5 4 -4
And it sunk for to r-ise no more.
