ALL THINGS ARE QUITE SILENT
All things are quite silent
All Dm things are quite Em silent,
each C mor- Am tal at Dm rest,
when Dm me and my Em love

When a Em bold set of Am ruffians

and they Dm forced my dear Em jewel to

1. All things are quite silent, each mortal at rest,
when me and my love got snug in one nest.
When a bold set of ruffians they entered our cave,
aAnd they forced my dear jewel to plough the salt wave.
2. I begged hard for my sai lor as though I begged for life. They’d
not lis ten to me al though a fond wife, Saying:” The
king he wants sai lors, to the sea he must go,” And they’ve
left me la men ting in so rrow and woe.
3. Through green fields and mea dows we oft times did walk, and
sweet con ver sa tion of love we have talked, with the
birds in the wood land so sweet ly did sing, and the
lovely thrush es’ voices made the val leys to ring.
4. Al though my love’s gone I will not be cast down. Who
knows but my sai lor may once more re tum? And
will make me a mends for all trou ble and strife, and my
true love and I might live hap py for life.
