"As I roved out" is the corect title to an Irish song that starts:

As I roved out, on a bright May morning, to view the meadow and the flowers gay. .....

It's a slow ballad of unfaithfully lovers. Sorry I can't help with the chords.

Ummmm, I'm a little confused. . . Is this the same song/tune as "'P' for Paddy?" If so I can help with the chords, but I'd not want to lead you astray if I'm thinking of the wrong song. P for Paddy is in the DT database, and the lyrics are:

As I strolled out one bright may morn, to take a little walk,

I set myself down on an old stone wall, to hear two lovers talk.

Etc......

V Malin

I would like to clear up the confusion of these messages. There are two songs titled "As I Roved Out". One is the traditional ballad correctly and most eloquently described by "dterrel". The other is the more lighthearted tune which is similar to "P for Paddy". The lyrics are "Who are you me pretty fair maid, and who are you me honey," or something like that. I can give you basic guitar chords for both.

     dm                 C         G   C
As I roved out one bright May morning
F em dm G
To view the meadows and flowers gay
F em G dm
When whom should I spy but my own true lover
F G
As she sat under yon apple tree.


am G
Who are you me pretty fair maid
am em
and who are you me honey
am G
Who are you me pretty fair maid
am em
and who are you me honey
am em
She answered me cheerfully
G D7
I am me mammy's daughter
am G
with my too rye ah fuddle diddle da
em G D am
and nancy-toodle ma derry-o.

Please note that these are not perfect as I did the chords out of my head - that goes for the words as well. If you need anything more post me a request. I also find that playing these songs on guitar sounds much better in DADGAD tuning - have a go! (I play them myself on Mandolin)

And then there's the sprightly:

As I roved out on a May morning
On a May morning right early
I met my love upon the way
O Lord but she was early

And she sang lilt-a-doodle, lilt-a-doodle,
Lilt-a-doodle day, and she hey-da-lon-da-day
And she hey-da-lon-da-day and sh'londy

Her boots was black and her stockings white,
And her buckles shone like silver;
She had a dark and a-rolling eye
And her earrings tipped her shoulder.

And she sang (etc)

(Sung to George and me in 1952 by Sarah Maken, Keady, Co. Armagh).

Sorry but I couldn't resist the obvious and searched Digi Trad !!!
Just a few results!!!! This confirmed what I thought. There are very many songs which start the same way. Usually in May, have you tried rhyming with ....Dark September Morning?

Don't want to spoil anyone's fun or anything - but has anyone else noticed that the original question was asked eleven years ago - and the OP apparently never returned?

(Lots of great songs, though!)

I guess he roved WAY out.

Maybe he went along the Banks of the Bann, fell in, and drowned.

This very old and long forgotten thread was cruelly dragged back out of the peaceful grave yesterday by an anonymous blow-in who wanted to make a snide remark. That post has been deleted, so it now looks as if it was Terry's fault, which it wasn't; though it's always a good idea to look at the dates on messages. A lot of old discussions get revived by people who wander in via external search engines and who don't understand how this place works; usually there are several other threads on the same subject that contain better information.

Well, the great kytrad herself got sucked in - so maybe that makes it all worthwhile ...

Well, it's a treat to get some of the background on some of those great old songs from someone 'who was there' ... Thanks!
