Black, black, black is the color of my true love’s hair.
Bm           Em   Em7  Em6 Em+ Em
Her lips are like some roses fair,
            Amsus2             Bmadd13- Em
She has the sweetest smile and gentlest hands,
           Dm Dm7 Dm6         C#m C#m7 C#m6 C#madd11 C#madd9/B
I love the ground whereon she stands.

I love my love and well she knows,
                     Em7/B    Em7
I love the ground whereon she goes,
           Amadd9 Bmadd9     Em7
I wish the day it soon would come

When she and I

Could be as one.

I go to the Clyde and I mourn and weep,
                Em7/B       Em7
But satisfied I never could sleep.
                 Amadd9         Bmadd9    Em7
I’ll write her a letter, just a few short lines
           Dm               C#m
And suffer death a thousand times.
