Clannad - The Pretty Maid

CAPO: 5th Fret

Am  Em  Am

[Verse 1]
            G             F   Em
It was on a fine summer's morning
    Am            Em           Am
The birds sweetly tune on each bough
                G          F   Em
And as I walked out for my pleasure
  Am         Em        Am
I saw a maid milking a cow

[Verse 2]
G/B C                          F
Her voice was so enchanting, melodious
     C                  F Em Dm
Left me quite unable to go_____
   Em            Am          G  Em
My heart, it was loaded with sorrow
        Am          Em          Am     Em  Am
For the pretty girl milking her cow

[Verse 3]
              G         F  Em
Then to her I made my advances
      Am           Em        Am
"Good morrow, most beautiful maid
               G          F   Em
Your beauty my heart so entrances"
       Am          Em           Am
"Pray, sir, do not banter," she said

[Verse 4]
 G/B C                        F
"I'm not such a rare precious jewel
     C                    F Em Dm
That I should enamour you so_____
  Em       Am          G    Em
I am but a poor little milk girl"
         Am          Em          Am     Em  Am
Says the pretty girl milking her cow

[Verse 5]
              G            F  Em
"The Indies afford no such jewel
   Am              Em       Am
So bright, so transparently clear
               G            F   Em
Ah, do not add flames to my funeral
   Am          Em          Am
Consent but to know me, my dear"

[Verse 6]
G/B C                  F
Oh, had I the lamp of Aladdin
       C                            F Em Dm
Or the wealth that gold mines can bestow___
        Em        Am        G  Em
I would rather be poor in a cottage
         Am          Em          Am     Em  Am  Em Am
With the pretty girl milking her cow
