Intro 
Am F G 
Am F E 

Am 
There was a warm wind with the high tide 
        C                 Am 
on the south side of the hill. 
        G                 F 
When a young girl went a-walking 
       C               E   G 
and I followed with a will. 

Am 
"Good day to you, my fine young lady 
           C               Am 
with your lips so sweetly full. 
       G                  F 
May I help you comb your long hair --- 
           C                D     E 
sweep it from that brow so cool?" 
  

F    G             Am 
Up, ride with the kelpie. 
       F         G           C   E 
I'll steal your soul to the deep. 
              F         G            C        F 
If you don't ride with me while the devil's free 
                G       Am 
I'll ride with somebody else. 

Intro 
Am F G 
Am F E 

Am 
Well I'm a man when I'm feeling 
    C               Am 
the urge to step ashore. 
           G                 F 
So I may charm you --- not alarm you. 
         C                     D    E 
Tell you all fine things, and more. 
  

F    G             Am 
Up, ride with the kelpie. 
       F         G           C   E 
I'll steal your soul to the deep. 
              F         G            C        F 
If you don't ride with me while the devil's free 
                G       Am 
I'll ride with somebody else. 

Am F G 
Am F E

Am 
Say goodbye to all your dear kin --- 
          C               Am 
for they hate to see you go 
         G                     F 
in your young prime, to this place of mine 
         C               D   E 
in the still loch far below. 
  

F    G             Am 
Up, ride with the kelpie. 
       F         G           C   E 
I'll steal your soul to the deep. 
              F         G            C        F 
If you don't ride with me while the devil's free 
                G       Am 
I'll ride with somebody else.
