     Gm          F            Dm          C 
I'll buy you six bay mares to put in your stable 
Gm         Dm     F              C 
six golden apples bought with my pay. 
  Gm           F     Dm            C 
I am the first piper who calls the sweet tune, 
    Gm        Dm          F       C     A 
but I must be gone by the seventh day. 

        E   G       D         A 
So come on, I'm the whistler.

I have a fife and a drum to play.

Get ready for the whistler.

All kinds of sadness I've left behind me. 
Gm         Dm       F           C 
Many's the day when I have done wrong.

But I'll be yours for ever and ever. 
Gm           Dm         F         C     A 
Climb in the saddle and whistle along. 

        E   G       D         A

Deep red are the sunsets in mystical places.

Black are the nights on summerday sands. 
Gm             F        Dm            C 
We'll find the speck of truth in each riddle.

Hold the first grain of love in our hands.
