Great Big Sea - The Jolly Butcher

Printable Version


From "Up"

Tab By: Barry O'Brien

CHORUS:
[G] Oh won't you come along with me love
[C]Come a[D]long with [G]me
Come for one night and be my wife 
And [C]come a[D]long with [G]me

[G]Well it is of a jolly butcher as you might plainly [D]see
As he [G]rumbled out one morning in [F]search of [C]compa[D]ny
[G]He went into a tavern and a fair girl he did [D]see
Ah [G]come for one night be my wife, [F]come a[C]long with [D]me

[G]He called for liquor of the best and he made such fortune [D]play
Come [G]for a drink it will make you think that it [F]is our [C]wedding [D]day

CHORUS

Well he [G]called for a candle to light their way to [D]bed
And [G]when he had her in the room these [F]words to [C]her he [D]said
A [G]sovereign I will give to you for to embrace your [D]charms
And [G]all that night the fair young maid laid [f]in the [C]strangers [D]arms

CHORUS

Ah [G]early the next morning he surely went his [D]way
He [G]looked onto the that fair young maid and [F]onto [C]her did [D]say
That [G]sovereign that I gave to you, now do not think me [D]strange
That [G]sovereign that I gave to you will you [F]give me [C]back me [D]change

CHORUS (x2)

Well a[G]bout twelve months later he rumbled out once [D]more
And he [G]went into the tavern where he'd [F]often [C]been be[D]fore
He [G]wasn't in there very long when his fair girl he did [D]see
And she brought [G]forth a baby three months old and [F]placed it [C]on his [D]knee

Ah [G]when he saw the baby he began to curse and [D]swear
And he [G]said onto that fair young maid why [F]did you [C]bring him [D]here
Well he [G]is your own kind sir she said, do not think me [D]strange
That [G]sovereign that you gave to me well I [F]give's you [C]back your [D]change

CHORUS (x2)
