Performed: Bill Keith and Jim Rooney, James Taylor

Capo 2
A A G D A
One morning, one morning, one morning in May
A G D E
I spied a young couple, they were making their way
A F#m D A
One was a maiden, so bright and so fair
A D E A
And the other was a soldier and a brave volunteer
 
A G D A
"Good morning, good morning, good morning," said he
A G D E
"And where are you going, my pretty lady?"
A F#m D A
"I'm going out a-walking on the banks of the sea
A D E A
Just to see the waters rise and hear the Nightingale sing"
 
A G D A
Now they had not been standing but a minute or two
A G D E
When out of his knapsack a fiddle he drew
A F#m D A
And the tune that he played made the valleys all ring
A D E A
"O hark," cried the maiden, "hear the Nightingale sing."
 
A G D A
"O maiden, fair maiden, it's time to give o'er."
A G D E
"O no, kind soldier, please play one tune more
A F#m D A
For I'd rather hear your fiddle at the touch of one string
A D E A
Than to see the waters rise and hear the Nightingale sing."
 
A G D A
"O soldier, kind soldier, will you marry me?"
A G D E
"O no, pretty maiden, that never shall be;
A F#m D A
I've a wife now in London and children twice three
A D E A
Two wives and the army's too many for me."
 
A G D A
"Well, I'll go back to London and I'll stay there for a year
A G D E
It's often that I'll think of you, my little dear
A F#m D A
And if ever I return, it will be in the spring
A D E A
Just to see the waters rise and hear the Nightingale sing
A D E A
To see the waters rise and hear the Nightingale sing."
