Eli the barrow boy of the old town

Sells coal and marigolds and he cries out

All down the day
Dbm Dbm      Dbm         Eb    E  E   E  Eb
Below the tamaracks he is crying
Dbm  Dbm        Dbm         Eb      E  E  
Corncobs and candle wax for the buying

Would I could afford to buy my love a fine robe

Made of gold and silk Arabian thread
A                                     E
She is dead and gone and lying in the pine grove
    B                             Dbm  Dbm    Dbm
And I must push my barrow all the day

And I must push my barrow all the day

Eli the barrow boy when they found him
Dbm      Dbm      Dbm         Eb     E      E  
Dressed all in corduroy, he had drowned in
    B              Dbm  Dbm    Dbm B Dbm  Dbm    Dbm B
The river down the way
Dbm   Dbm       Dbm         Eb   E     E    E  Eb
They lay his body down in a churchyard
Dbm  Dbm              Dbm           Eb       E   E  
But still when the moon is out with his pushcart

He calls down the day

Made of gold and silk Arabian thread

But I am dead and gone and lying in the church ground
    B                              Dbm  Dbm    Dbm  
But still I push my barrow all the day
