    Mary and the Soldier

    by Paul Brady
    Come [C] all you [C6sus4] lads of high [G] renown
    That will [C] hear of a [G7] fair young [C] maiden
    And [C] she roved [F] out on a [C] summer's day
    For to [C] view the [G7] soldiers [C] parading
    They [C] march so bold and they [F] look so [C] gay [G7],
    The [Am] colours flyin' and the [F] bands did [G7] play (pause)
    And it [C] caused young [Am] Mary [F] for to [G7] say,
    I'll [C] wed you me [G7] gallant [C] soldier"

    She viewed the soldiers on parade
    And as they stood at their leisure
    Young Mary to herself did say:
    "At last I found my treasure
    But oh how cruel my parents must be
    To banish my darlin' so far from me
    Well I'll leave them all and I'll go with thee
    Me bold undoubted soldier"

    "Oh Mary dear, your parents' love,
    I pray don't be unruly
    For when you're in a foreign land,
    Believe me you'll rue it surely
    Perhaps in battle I might fall
    From a shot from an angry cannonball
    And you so far from your daddy's hall
    Be advised by a gallant soldier."

    "Oh I have fifty guineas in my coat,
    Likewise a heart that's bolder
    And I'd leave them all and I'd go with you
    Me bold undaunted soldier
    So don't say no but let me go
    And I will face the daring foe
    And we'll march together to and fro
    And I'll wed you, my gallant soldier"

    And when he saw her loyalty
    And Mary so true-hearted
    He said: "Me darling, married we'll be,
    And nothing but death will part us
    And when we're in a foreign land
    I'll guard you, darling, with my right hand
    And hopes that God might stand a friend
    To Mary and her gallant soldier"
