Old Maid In The Garret Ukulele Chords

Now I’ve [G]often heard it said from me father and me mother
That [D]going to a wedding is the [C]making of a[G]nother
Well, [G]if this be so, then I’ll [C]go without a [G]biddin
Oh kind providence, won’t you send me to a [D]wedding

And its [G]Oh [C]dear [G]me, how would it [C]be,
if I [G]die an old [D]maid in a gar[G]ret

Well, [G]there’s my sister Jean, she’s not handsome or good-looking
[D]Scarcely sixteen and a fe[C]lla she was [G]courting
Now [G]she’s twenty-four with a [C]son and a [G]daughter
Here am I at forty-five and I’ve never had an [D]offer

And its [G]Oh [C]dear [G]me, how would it [C]be,
if I [G]die an old [D]maid in a gar[G]ret

I can [G]cook and I can sew and I can keep the house right tidy
[D]Rise up in the morning and [C]get the breakfast [G]ready
There’s [G]nothing in this wide world would [C]make me half so [G]cheery
As a wee fat man who would call me his own [D]deary

And its [G]Oh [C]dear [G]me, how would it [C]be,
if I [G]die an old [D]maid in a gar[G]ret

So come [G]landsman or come pinsman, come tinker or come tailor
Come [D]fiddler or come dancer, come [C]ploughboy or come [G]sailor
Come [G]rich man, come poor man, come [C]fool or come [G]witty
Come any man at all that will marry me for [D]pity

And its [G]Oh [C]dear [G]me, how would it [C]be,
if I [G]die an old [D]maid in a gar[G]ret

Well now [G]I’m away home for nobody’s heeding
No[D]body’s heeding and to [C]poor Annie’s [G]pleading
I’ll [G]go away home to my [C]own bitty [G]garret
If I can’t get a man, then I’ll have to get a [D]parrot

And its [G]Oh [C]dear [G]me, how would it [C]be,
if I [G]die an old [D]maid in a gar[G]ret
