LLANGOLLEN MARKET 4/4 (Welsh Folk Song)
The lyrics and chords
fit Siwsann George’s version from her album ‚Traditional Songs of Wales / Caneuon Traddodiadol Cymru’. Also recorded by Siobhan Owen.

Intro: Dm-Dm-(Dm-A)-Dm

It’s (Dm)far beyond the moun(A)tains
That (Dm)look so distant (A)here,
To (Dm)fight his country’s (F)battles,
Last (C)Mayday (A)went my (Dm)dear;
Ah, (F)well I shall re(C)member
With (Dm)bitter sighs the (A)day,
Why, (Dm)Owen, did you leave me?
At home why (A)did I (Dm)stay?  Repeat Intro

Ah, (Dm)cruel was my fa(A)ther
That (Dm)did my flight re(A)strain,
And (Dm)I was cruel-(F)hearted
That (C)did at (A)home re(Dm)main,
With (F)you, my love, con(C)tented,
I’d (Dm)journey far a(A)way;
Why, (Dm)Owen, did you leave me?
At home why (A)did I (Dm)stay?  Repeat Intro

(Dm)While thinking of my O(A)wen,
My (Dm)eyes with tears do (A)fill,
And (Dm)then my mother (F)chides me
Be(C)cause my (A)wheel stands (Dm)still,
But how (F)can I think of (C)spinning
When my (Dm)Owen’s far a(A)way-
Why, (Dm)Owen, did you leave me?
At home why (A)did I (Dm)stay?  Repeat Intro

To (Dm)market at Llango(A)llen
Each (Dm)morning do I (A)go,
But (Dm)how to strike a (F)bargain
No (C)longer (A)do I (Dm)know;
My (F)father chides at (C)evening,
My (Dm)mother all the (A)day;
Why, (Dm)Owen, did you leave me?
At home why (A)did I (Dm)stay?  Repeat Intro

Oh, (Dm)would it please kind hea(A)ven
To (Dm)shield my love from (A)harm,
To (Dm)clasp him to my (F)bosom
Would (C)every (A)care dis(Dm)arm,
But a(F)las, I fear, tis (C)distant-
That (Dm)happy, happy (A)day;
Why, (Dm)Owen, did you leave me?
At home why (A)did I (Dm)stay?

Lyrics Without The Chords
It’s far beyond the mountains
That look so distant here,
To fight his country’s battles,
Last Mayday went my dear;
Ah, well I shall remember
With bitter sighs the day,
Why, Owen, did you leave me?
At home why did I stay?  Repeat Intro

Ah, cruel was my father
That did my flight restrain,
And I was cruelhearted
That did at home remain,
With you, my love, contented,
I’d journey far away;
Why, Owen, did you leave me?
At home why did I stay?

While thinking of my Owen,
My eyes with tears do fill,
And then my mother chides me
Because my wheel stands still,
But how can I think of spinning
When my Owen’s far away-
Why, Owen, did you leave me?
At home why did I stay?

To market at Llangollen
Each morning do I go,
But how to strike a bargain
No longer do I know;
My father chides at evening,
My mother all the day;
Why, Owen, did you leave me?
At home why did I stay? 

Oh, would it please kind heaven
To shield my love from harm,
To clasp him to my bosom
Would every care disarm,
But alas, I fear, tis distant-
That happy, happy day;
Why, Owen, did you leave me?
At home why did I stay?
