Verse:
C#m C#m    C#m          D#     E   E    E  D#
Eli the barrow boy of the old town
C#m    C#m        C#m         D#     E     E
Sells coal and marigolds and he cries out
B            C#m  C#m    C#m B C#m  C#m    C#m B
All down the day
C#m C#m      C#m         D#    E  E   E  D#
Below the tamaracks he is crying
C#m  C#m        C#m         D#      E  E
Corncobs and candle wax for the buying
B            C#m  C#m    C#m B C#m C#m    C#m B
All down the day

Chorus:
A                                     E
Would I could afford to buy my love a fine robe
A                             C#m
Made of gold and silk Arabian thread
A                                     E
She is dead and gone and lying in the pine grove
    B                             C#m  C#m    C#m
And I must push my barrow all the day
    B                             C#m  C#m
And I must push my barrow all the day

Verse:
C#m C#m    C#m          D#        E     E    E  D#
Eli the barrow boy when they found him
C#m      C#m      C#m         D#     E      E
Dressed all in corduroy, he had drowned in
    B              C#m  C#m    C#m B C#m  C#m    C#m B
The river down the way
C#m   C#m       C#m         D#   E     E    E  D#
They lay his body down in a churchyard
C#m  C#m              C#m           D#       E   E
But still when the moon is out with his pushcart
   B              C#m  C#m    C#m B C#m C#m    C#m B
He calls down the day

Chorus:
A                                     E
Would I could afford to buy my love a fine gown
A                             C#m
Made of gold and silk Arabian thread
    A                                   E
But I am dead and gone and lying in the church ground
    B                              C#m  C#m    C#m
But still I push my barrow all the day
    B                              C#m  C#m    C#m C#m    C#m C#m    C#m
But still I push my barrow all the day
