Henry My Son lyrics and chords, This one started off as an old English traditional folk song about Lord Randal, but the lyrics get changed as time goes by. It goes back hundreds of years and is more popular in Ireland than England. The video of myself shows how to play the song on guitar.

[D]Where have you been all day, Henry, my son
Where have you been all day, [A]my beloved one
A[D]way on the meadow, away on the meadow,
Make my bed, I've a[A] pain in my head
And I[D] want to[A] lie[D] down.
 
What, did you have to eat, Henry,my son
What did you have to eat, my beloved one
Poison beans, poison beans,
Make my bed, I've a pain in my head
And I want to lie down.
 
What will you leave your mother, Henry, my son
What will you leave your mother, my beloved one
A woven blanket, a woven blanket,
Make my bed, I've a pain in my head
And I want to lie down.
 
What will you leave your brother, Henry, my son
What will you leave your brother, my beloved one
A blue suit, a blue suit,
Make my bed, I've a pain in my head
And I want to lie down.
 
What will you leave your father, Henry, my son
What will you leave your father, my beloved one
A watch and chain, a watch and chain,
Make my bed, I've a pain in my head
And I want, to lie down.
 
What will you leave your children, Henry, my son
What will you leave your children, my beloved one
The keys to heaven, the keys to heaven,
Make my bed, I've a pain in my head
And I want to lie down.
 
What will you leave your sweetheart, Henry, my son
What will you leave your sweetheart, my beloved one
A rope to hang her, a rope to hang her,
Make my bed, I've a pain in my head
And I want to lie down.

This is one of the easy songs you'll ever learn to play. Just two chords for the whole song. I play this one in the key of D Major. I don't play all the verses as it's only here to give you a feel of how it goes.
