Intro: C-F-Dm-Am-Am   F-C-F-C-C   F-C-F-C-C   G7---Am-F-Dm-Am-(Am-F)-Am-(Am-G7)
As (C)I went out (F)walking, one (Dm)morning in (Am)June -Am
To (F)view the fair (C)fields, and the (F)valleys in (C)bloom; -C
I (F)spied a pretty (C)fair maid, she a(F)ppeared like a (C)queen, -C
(G7)With - her (Am)costly fine (F)robes and her (Dm)mantle so (Am)green
(Am-F)-Am-(Am-G7)

Says (C)I, my pretty (F)fair maid, won’t (Dm)you come with (Am)me, -Am
We'll (F)both join in (C)wedlock, and (F)married we'll (C)be; -C
I will (F)dress you in fine (C)linen, you'll a(F)ppear like a (C)queen, -C
(G7)With - your (Am)costly fine (F)robes and your (Dm)mantle so (Am)green.
(Am-F)-Am-(Am-G7)

Says (C)she, now my (F)young man, you (Dm)must be ex(Am)cused,  -Am
For (F)I'll wed with no (C)man, so you (F)must be re(C)fused; -C
To the (F)green woods I will (C)wander and (F)shun all men's (C)view -C
(G7)For - the (Am)boy I love (F)dearly lies in (Dm)famed Water(Am)loo.
Bridge: F-C-F-C-C   F-C-F-C-C   G7---Am-F-Dm-Am-(Am-F)-Am-(Am-G7)

Well, (C)if you're not (F)married, say (Dm)your lover's (Am)name -Am
I (F)fought in that (C)battle, so I (F)might know the (C)same. -C
Draw (F)near to my (C)garment, and (F)there you will (C)see -C
(G7)His – (Am)name is em(F)broidered on my (Dm)mantle so (Am)green.
(Am-F)-Am-(Am-G7)

In the (C)ribbon of her (F)mantle, there (Dm)I did be(Am)hold, -Am
His (F)name and his (C)surname, in (F)letters of (C)gold -C
Young (F)William O'(C)Riley, a(F)ppeared in my (C)view -C
(G7)He – (Am)was my chief (F)comrade back in (Dm)famed Water(Am)loo
(Am-F)-Am-(Am-G7)

And (C)as he lay (F)dying, I (Dm)heard his last (Am)cry -Am
’If you were (F)here lovely (C)Nancy I'd be (F)willing to (C)die’ -C�
And as I (F)told her this (C)story, in (F)anguish she (C)flew, -C
(G7)And - the (Am)more that I (F)told her, the (Dm)paler she (Am)grew
(Am-F)-Am-(Am-G7)

So I (C)smiled on my (F)Nancy, 'twas (Dm)I broke your (Am)heart, -Am
In (F)your fathers (C)garden, that (F)day we did (C)part -C
And (F)this is the (C)truth, and the (F)truth I de(C)clare, -C
(G7)Oh – (Am)here's your love (F)token the (Dm)gold ring I (Am)wear
