Intro: 4/4 |     -     |        |    -     |        |
          Em           Bm          Em            
1. I've a nice lit-tle house and a cow yard too with grass,
          G             D               Em
   I've a plant gar-den run-ning by the door.
          Em               Bm         Em
   I've a shel-ter for the hens and a sta-ble for the ass
        G            D        Em
   Now, what could a man want more?

           G           D
2. I don't know, maybe so
         Em            Bm             Em
   But a bach-e-lor is ea-sy and he's free.
            Em           Bm                 Em
   But I've lots to look af-ter, though I'm liv-ing all alone
        G          D               Em
   Sure no-bo-dy's look-ing af-ter me.

     Em     D      Em
   |     -     |        |

      Em            Bm                Em
3. Me fa-ther often tells me I should go and have a try
      G                D             Em
   To find a girl that owns a bit of land.
         Em               Bm                    Em 
   And I know, the way he says it, that there's some-one on his mind
          G               D           Em
   And me mo-ther has the whole thing planned.

           G           D 
4. I don't know, maybe so,
               Em             Bm            Em
   But t'would mol-li-fy them great-ly to a-gree.
                Em               Bm               Em
   Now, there's lit-tle Brid-get Flynn, sure it's her I'd love to win,
           G              D      Em
   But she ne-ver has an eye for me.

     Em     D      Em
   |     -     |        |

       Em                Bm         Em
5. Now there's a lit-tle girl who's worth her weight in gold,
       G                D                 Em
   And that's a de-cent dow-ry, don't you see?
         Em             Bm              Em 
   And I mean to go and ask her just as soon as I get bold,
             G                D      Em
   If she'll come and have an eye for me.

            G           D 
6. Will she go? I don't know,
           Em               Bm             Em
   But I'd love to have her sit-ting on me knee.
            Em          Bm          Em
   And I'll sing like a thrush in a haw-thorn bush
             G                D       Em
   If she'll come and have an eye for me.

       Em        Bm        Em    
Outro: Mm   -    Mm   -    Mm Mm Mm
