Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: THE BONNY MAID OF FIFE
From: Ted from Australia
Date: 26 Mar 99 - 08:43 AM

THE BONNY MAID OF FIFE

G                 D          C              D           G                               D   
One evening fair he took the air down by the river Forth
       G          D                      Em                  Bm                        C                    D            G
For to take his ease and to watch the geese fly in squadrons from the north
G                  D          C              D              G                       D
And there he spied all on the tide, he knew in all is life
    G         D                          Em               Bm                       C             D                G        C
He'd never seen such a gentle queen as the bonny maid of Fife

There he spied all on the tide, he knew in all is life
He'd never seen such a gentle queen as the bonny maid of Fife

Her eyes were like some summer fair in autumn's wisdom's door
A man could find more treasure there than in any pirates' hoard
A smile so free and rich as the sea pierced his heart like any knife
As she skipped and she danced all on the sand this bonny maid of Fife

A smile so free and rich as the sea pierced his heart like any knife
As she skipped and she danced all on the sand the bonny maid of Fife

And as she danced she sang the tune of a hue both sweet and sad
Her gentle tones could charm the stones or captivate any lad
The birds began to tune their voices and set the sky alight
But their notes were shrill beside the trill of the bonnie maid of Fife

The birds began to tune their voices and set the sky alight
But the notes were shrill beside the trill of the bonnie maid of Fife

He has been a traveller bold far off from Scotland's gate
Through Norway and through Holland he's plied the roving trade
He's seen fair maids in London town; he's lived a freeman's' life,
But he's heart's full swell he's in the spell of the bonnie maid of Fife

He's seen fair maids in London town he's lived a freeman's' life
But he's heart's full swell he's in the spell of the bonnie maid of Fife

Written by Nick Keir of the McCalmans. There is a better thread here: Bonnie Maid of Fife.
