                John Barbour
capo on 3
This is my own work. I think I got it right.

What ails you my daughter dear
your eyes are so dim
have you had any sore sickness
or yet been sleeping with a man

I have not had any sore sickness
but I know what's ailing me
G                            C
I thinking of my own true love
G                    C
he plows the raging sea
G                    C
he plows the raging sea

G         Am       C         D        
be he a lord or a duke or a knight
G              D        G       
or a man of wealth of fame
G                           C
or is he one of my sailor lads
G                      C
come tell me now his name

G          Am       C       D
he is no lord or a duke or knight
G              D         G
or a man of wealth and fame
G                          C
he is one of your sailor lads
G                         C
and john barbour is his name

G       Am          C       D   
now if John Barbour is his name
G          D           G
a lowly sailor man is he
G                           C
and if John Barbor is his name
G                    C
then hanged he will be
G                    C
than hanged he will be

G            Am       C       D    
the king he calls his sailors all
G          D        G
G                                C
John Barbour was the first he called 
G                      C
but the last came was he

G        Am      C       D
when he came a trippin down
G          D              G
he was clothed in all in white
G                             C
his hair were like the roses red
G                          C
and his teeth were ivory brite

G        Am            C    D    
he paid their wages with a smile
G            D            G 
when John Barbour he did see
G                              C
if i was a woman if I were a man
G                         C
then bedfellows we would be

G          Am        C       D
will you marry my daughter Jane
G          D         G 
and take her by the hand
G                            C
will you come and dine with me
G                       C
take charge of all my land

G        Am           C      D
I will marry your daughter Jane
G           D             G
and I'll take her by the hand
G                          C
I will come and dine with you
G                            C
but to hell with all your lands
G            Am       C        D
if you can give her one gold piece
G             D       G                        
then I can give her three
G                      C
for I am bold John Barbour
G                     C
and I plow the raging sea
G                  C
I plow the raging sea
G                  C
I plow the raging sea
