Katy Dear
Traditional (Ian and Sylvia version)



Chords


Song

1.

Oh Katie dear go ask your mother,
If you might be a bride of mine,
If she says "yes”, then come and tell me,
If she says "no", let's run away.

2.

I cannot go and ask my mother,
For she is on her bed of rest,
And by her side, a silver dagger,
To pierce the heart I love the best.

3.

Oh Katie dear go ask your father,
If you might be a bride of mine,
If he says "yes”, then come and tell me,
If he says "no", let's run away.

4.

I cannot go and ask my father,
For he is on his bed of rest,
And by his side, a silver dagger,
To pierce the heart I love the best.

5.

So he picked up that silver dagger,
And he pierced it through his loving breast,
Farewell Katy, farewell darling,
I'll die for the one I love the best.

6.

So she picked up that bloody weapon,
And she pierced it through her snow white breast,
Farewell mama, farewell papa,
I'll go with the one I love the best.

coda:

I'll go with the one I love the best.
