Intro: 2/2 |     |     |     |  𝄎  |

       G        D         Em         C
1. The morn was break-ing bright and fair
       G         Em     Am      D
   The lark sang in the sky, |     |
            G        D         Em      C
   When the maid she bound her gol-den hair
          G             D      G
   With a blythe glance in her eye |  𝄎  |

       G      Em       C         D
2. For who be-yond the gay green-wood,
       G        Em       C      D
   Was wait-ing her with joy |     |
      G       D        Em     C
   Oh who but gal-lant Re-nar-dine
          G             D     G
   On the moun-tains of Po-me-roy. |  𝄎  |

        G      D      Em       C
3. Full of-ten in the daw-ning hour
        G       Em        C        D
   Full oft' in twi-light brown |     |
      G       D           Em        C
   He met the maid in the wood-land bo-wer
             G            D        G
   Where the stream comes foam-ing down |  𝄎  |

       G    D    Em        Am   D
4. For they were faith-ful in a love
      G          Em       Am      D
   No wars could e'er des-troy |     |
      G         D           Em     C
   No ty-rant's law touched Re-nar-dine,
          G             D     G
   On the moun-tains of Po-me-roy |  𝄎  |

        G        D         Em   C
5. Dear love she said I am so a-fraid
           G         Em        Am     D
   For the foe-man's force and you |     |
           G           D      Em         C
   They've tracked you in the low-land's plain
       G       D       G
   And all the val-ley through |  𝄎  |

      G        Em         Am      D
6. My kins-men frown when you are named
        G         Em        Am      D
   Your life they would des-troy |     |
      G         D      Em     C
   Be-ware they say of Re-nar-dine
          G             D     G
   On the moun-tains of Po-me-roy |  𝄎  |

        G        D         Em       C
7. Fear not fear not sweet-heart he cried
        G       Em      Am    D
   Fear not the foe for me |     |
      G           D          Em      C
   No chain shall fall, what-e'er be-tide
          G          D       G
   On the arms which will be free! |  𝄎  |

      G          Em    Am      D
8. Oh leave your cruel kin and come
            G       Em     C       D
   When the lark is in the sky. |     |
            G       D          Em        C
   And it's with my gun I will guard you well
          G             D     G
   On the moun-tains of Po-me-roy |  𝄎  |

            G        D         Em       C
9. When the morn had come, she rose and fled
            G        Em       Am       D
   From her cruel kin and her home |     |
       G          D        Em    C
   And bright the wood and ro-sy red
           G         D          G
   And the tum-bling tor-rent's foam |  𝄎  |

            G         Em           C        D
10. But the mist came down and the tem-pest roared,
        G     Em          Am     D  
    And all a-round des - troy - ed
          G            D         Em     C
    And a pale drowned bride met Re-nar-dine
           G             D     G
    On the moun-tains of Po-me-roy |  𝄎  |

      G         D        Em       C
** An out-lawed man in a land for-lorn
      G          Em       C      D
   He scorned to turn and fly |     |
          G        D        Em       C
   But he kept the cause of free-dom safe
     G       D         G
   U-pon the moun-tain high |  𝄎  |

     G     Em    Am     D     G     Em    Am     D
  |     |      |     |     |     |      |     |     |

     G      D    Em     C     G     D      G
  |     |      |     |     |     |      |     |...
