Chords and lyrics for Pretty Fair Maid In The Garden by Tim Obrien

G 
Pretty fair maid was in her garden
 
When a  
Em 
stranger
D 
came 
 
a-riding
G 
by
 
He came up to  
D/F# 
the gate and
Em 
called 
 
her
 
Said pretty fair  
D 
maid would you be my  
G 
bride
 
G 
Said I’ve a true love who’s in the army
 
And he’s been g
Em 
one 
 
 
D 
for seven long  
G 
years
 
And if he’s gone  
D/F# 
for seven year
Em 
 
longer
 
I’ll still be  
D 
waiting for him h
G 
ere
 
G 
Perhaps he’s on some watercourse drowning
 
Perhaps he’s  
Em 
on
D 
some 
 
battlefield
G 
slain
 
Perhaps he’s to  
D/F# 
a fair gir
Em 
 
married
 
And you may  
D 
never see him a
G 
gain
 
G 
Well if he’s drowned, I hope he’s happy
 
Or if he’s  
Em 
on
D 
some battlefield  
G 
slain
 
And if he’s to  
D/F# 
some fair gir
Em 
 
married
 
I’ll love the  
D 
girl that married  
G 
him
 
G 
He took his hand out of his pocket
 
And on his  
Em 
finger he  
D 
wore a golden
G 
ring
 
And when she saw  
D/F# 
that band  
Em 
a-shining
 
A brand new  
D 
song her heart did s
G 
ing
 
G 
And then he threw his arms all around her
 
Kisses  
Em 
gave
D 
her one, two, t
G 
hree
 
Said I’m your true  
D/F# 
and 
 
lovin
Em 
 
soldier
 
That’s come back
D 
home to marry  
G 
thee
 
G 
Pretty fair maid was in her garden
 
When a  
Em 
stranger
D 
came 
 
a-riding
G 
by
 
He came up to  
D/F# 
the gate and
Em 
called 
 
her
 
Said pretty fair  
D 
maid would you be my  
G 
bride
