Am Em
I come to town lookin' for my love
Am Em
she's the sweet one Maggie Coulter
she left the field of her father's farm
with a kit bag on her shoulder
C Dm
we were going to wed in a nearby town
when November winds came colder
she ran and cried she thought I'd died
Am Em Am
cause that's what her father told her
she's sure to be wearing a wedding gown
was her mother's mums before her
you'd only have to see her once
and you'd know why I adored her
she's got strands of hair like the angel's fair
and lips like the reddest roses
but I'll tell you now that I'll cut down
any man who dares proposses
so I've got to run
while I've got the sun
before the ship rolls with the tide
and we'll sail away
at the break of day
never again will she leave my side (REPEAT INTRO)
when she heard the news of my demise
she was overcome with sorrow
she donned her gown
and she knew if she ran
she could catch that ship tommorrow
and when the boat went out to sea
she could throw herself in the water
for she couldn't swim
she knew she'd be dead
by the time that the fishermen caught her
well I reached the shore
but the ship had sailed
and with it went my true love
I swam for miles in the water's wild
but I couldn't catch my true love
and I heard a voice like a swallow's song
as the moon rose up above me
so I let the tide take me down inside
to the one who'll always love me
