Capo 1

Intro:  Em  D  Bm    Asus2  G  F#m  (4x)

  G              Bm
A blacksmith courted me
     Em                Asus2
Nine months and better
   C                   Bm
He fairly won my heart
         D           Em   D
He wrote me a letter
          G            Asus2
With his hammer in his hand
   Em              F#m  B7
He looked quite clever
       G     Bm      D   C#
And if I was with my love
        C        D  Em  D  Bm  Asus2  G  F#m
I would live for-ev-er

(Pre-Chorus)
      Em
Come Irishmen, both young and stern
                        D
With adventure in your soul
           Em
There are better ways to spend your days
             D      Em
Than working down a hole

(Chorus)
           G                  Bm
     I was tall and true, all of 6 foot 2
              C                   F#m
     But they broke me across the back
           C                             D
     By a name I'm known but it's not my own
          Em      D       Asus2
     They call me Crooked Jack

But where's my love gone
With his cheeks like roses
And his good black Billycock on
Decked around with primroses
I fear the blazing sun
Will shine and burn his beauty
And if I was with my love
I would do my duty

(Pre-Chorus)
The ganger's blue-eyed boy was I
Big Jack could do no wrong
And the reason simply was because
I could work hard hours and long

(Chorus)

(solos)  Em  D  C  D (4x)

        Em              D
Strange news is come to town
        C       D   Em
Strange news is carried
        Em              D
Strange news is come to town
        C       D   Em
That my love is married
Oh I wish them both much joy
Though they can't hear me
And may God reward them well
For the slighting of me

(Pre-Chorus)
And I've seen old men before their time
Their faces drawn and gray
But I never thought so soon would be mine
Be lined in the self same way

(Bridge)
   G            Bm
Do you remember when
    Em           A7
You lay beside me
        C                Bm
And you said you'd marry me
    B7          Em  Em6
And not deny me
     D              Em
If I said I'd marry you
(Em)(D) C              D  
 It was only for to try you
(C)Em            D     Bm
So bring your witness love
          C   D   Em
And I'll not deny you

(vocalized chord)

(Chorus)

(This riff is a work in progress, and I'll put the rest up once I figure it all
out.)
Em  D  Bm  Bb  Cm  C#  Bm  Asus2  Asus2  D  C#  Bm  Asus2

(overlapping)
        Em              D
1: They say that honest toil is good
        C              D
For the spirit and the soul
      Em                     D
But believe me boys it's for sweat and blood
          C            D
That they want you down a hole
      G                  Bm
I was tall and true, all of 6 foot 2
         C                   F#m
But they broke me across the back 
     C                              D
By a name I'm known but it's not my own
     Em      D       Em
They call me Crooked Jack

      Em             D
2: No witness have I none
     C          D
Save God Almighty
        Em            D
And may he reward you well
        C            D
For the slighting of me
    G                 Bm
Her lips grew pale and wan
   C                    F#m
It made a poor heart to tremble
   C                        D
To think she loved a one
       E         D  Em
And he proved decietful


Okay... I think that's it.
