Just a cabin boy on a Whitby trader, Mediterranean Sea,

Bound for Malta strand

The 15th day of June 1680,

We were caught and boarded by a Moorish galley,

The battle short, the outcome clear

My shipmates died in pain, only I was spared

And sold in a market in Algiers

[Verse]
Bm D Bm         
But luck was with me, I found a kindly master 
D 
Learned to serve him and I served him well
Bm G                
And with my new name, clothes and language, 
D A G 
I thought little of my homeland, truth to tell
Bm D Bm   
And when my master died his testament did free me,
D 
With a gift of gold besides
Bm G                    
I became a merchant, a man of consequence, 
D A G 
With everything a rich mans life provides
[Chorus]
A G 
They say the fates of men are written on the wind 
A G 
no-one knows where they may blow
Bm D A G 
I was taken in chains by a Barbary corsair 
D G A 
it was in Barbary I found 
G 
my Lily fair.
[Verse]
Bm D Bm   
Then one day in the slavers market, wide-eyed and trembling, 
D 
There among the goods on show
Bm G                  
A frightened Cornish girl, snatched from hearth and home, 
D A G 
And pity in my heart did overflow
Bm D Bm   
So I sent for gold and I bought her freedom, 
D 
Gave her shelter in my home
Bm G 
And in a few short weeks, love between us grew, 
D A G 
From each others side we swore we'd never roam
[Chorus]
A G 
They say the fates of men are written on the wind 
A G 
no-one knows where they may blow
Bm D A G 
I was taken in chains by a Barbary corsair 
D G A 
it was in Barbary I found 
G 
my Lily fair.
[Verse]
Bm D Bm   
But she missed her home, she missed her family, 
D 
Missed the deep green hills of England's shore
Bm G 
So I knew I must leave my home of twenty years, 
D A G<
