D 
I know my  
A7 
love by his  
D 
way of walking
A7 
And I know my love by his  
D 
way of talking
 
And I  
A 
know my love by his  
D 
suit of blue
 
But if  
A 
my love leaves me what  
D 
will I do.
Chorus
 
And  
A7 
still she cried I love  
D 
him the best
 
But a  
A7 
troubled mind sure can  
D 
know no rest
 
And  
A7 
yet she cried bonny  
D 
boys are few
 
And if  
A7 
my love leaves me what  
D 
will I do.
Chorus

There is a dance house in the Mardyke
And it’s there my dear love goes every night
He takes a strange girl all upon his knee
And don’t you think that it vexes me.

Chorus

If my love knew I could wash and wring
And if my love knew I could I could weave and spin
I could make a suit all of the finest kind
But the want of money leaves me behind.

Chorus

I know my love is an errant rover
I know he’ll wander the wide world over
In dear old Ireland he’ll no longer tarry
An American girl he’s sure to marry.
