Queen of Argyle

by Silly Wizard
Gentle-[C#m] men, it is me duty
to in-[C#m] form you of one beauty
though I’d [C#m] ask of you a favour:
Not to [B] seek her for a-[G#] while

Though I [C#m] own she is a creature
of [C#m] character and feature
no [C#m] words can paint the picture
of the [B] Queen of old Ar-[C#m] gyll

( Chorus
And if you could’ve seen her there
boys, if you had just been there
the swan was in her movement and the mornin in her smile
all the roses in the garden
they bow and ask her pardon
for not one could match the beauty of the Queen of old Argyll )

From the evening that I mention
I passed with light intention
through a part of our dear country known for beauty and for style

In a place of noble thinkers
of scholars and great drinkers
but above them all for splendour shone the Queen of old Argyll


So my lads I needs must leave you,
my intention’s not to grieve you
nor need would I decieve you, oh I’ll see you in a while

I must find some way to gain her,
to court her and to tame her
I fear my hearts in danger from the Queen of old Argyll
