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.

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 | % |
