G                      Am               Bm 
Harking is bonnie and there lives my love 
 C              G                       C 
My heart lies on him and will not remove 
G         D             Em                      Bm 
It will not remove oh for all that I have done 
 C              G                     C 
Oh I never will forget my love Anachie 
G                  D           Em             Bm 
For Anachie Gordon, he's bonnie and he's rough 
C           G                 C 
He'd entice any woman that ever he saw 
G     D              Em                  Bm 
He'd entice any woman and so he has done me 
C            G                C 
Oh I never will forget my love Anachie 


G                Am                             Bm 
Down came her father and he's standing by the door 
 C                    G                         C 
Saying Jeannie you're trying the tricks of a whore 
 G              D                   Em               Bm 
You care nothing for a man who cares so very much for thee 
 C              G                     C 
You must marry Lord Salton and leave Anachie 
 G        D               Em             Bm 
For Anachie Gordon, he's barely but a man 
 C                   G                          C 
Although he may be pretty but where are his lands? 
G                    D              Em                       Bm 
Oh the Sulton's lands are broad and his towers they run high 
 C                     G                      C 
You must marry Lord Sulton and leave Anachie 

G                   Am                  Bm 
With Anachie Gordon I'd beg for my bread 
C               G                               C 
And before I'll marry Sulton it's gold to my head 
G         D             Em                      Bm 
With gold to my head and gowns fringed to the knee 
 C              G                     C 
And I'll die if I don't get me love Anachie 
G                  D           Em             Bm 
And you that are my parents to church you may me bring 
C                    G                 C 
But unto Lord Sulton I'll never bear a son 
G         D              Em                  Bm 
To a son or a daughter, I'll never bow my knee 
C                      G                      C 
And I'll die if I don't get me love  Anachie 


G                        Am                             Bm 
Jeannie was married and from church she was brought home 
 C                   G                          C 
And when she and her maidens so merry should have been 
 G              D              Em                Bm 
When she and her maidens so merry should have been 
C               G                     C 
She went into her chambers she cried all alone 
G                  A                    Bm 
Come to bed now Jeannie me honey and my sweet 
C                     G                         C 
For to style you my mistress it would be so sweet 
G               D          Em                Bm 
Be it mistress or Jeannie it's all the same to me 
C                      G             C 
But in your bed Lord Sulton I never will lie 

G                D               Em             Bm 
And down came her father and he's spoken with reknown 
C          G                            D              G 
Saying you that are her maidens go loosen off her gowns 
G                  D               Em             Bm 
But she fell down to the floor so close down by his knee 
C                      G                      C 
Saying father look I'm dying for me love Anachie 

G                      Am                       Bm 
The day that Jeannie married was the day that Jeannie died 
C                      G                        C 
And the day that young Anachie came home on the tide 
G               D                Em                  Bm 
And down came her maidens all wringing of their hands 
C                           G                           C 
Saying oh it's been so long you've spent so long on the sands 
G           D              Em              Bm 
Oh so long on the sands, so long on the flood 
C                      G                      C 
They have married your Jeannie and now she lies dead 


G               Am                      Bm 
You that are her maidens go take me by the hand 
C                     G                         C 
And take me to the chamber that me love she lies in 
G               D                           Em               Bm 
And he's kissed her cold lips till his heart has turned to stone 
C                      G                      C 
And he's died in the chamber that his love she lies in
