The Nightingale Lyrics And Guitar Chords also known as The Bold Grenadier Traditional, the video is of the great  Al O'Donnell This one always goes down well at a session.The verse and chorus have the same chords.
 

Al O'Donnelly called the song ''The Bold Grenader'' , it's hard to know the right title for this song. I always knew it as The Nightingale, perhaps it's because I learned it from Johnny McEvoy. The youtube video is from the 1960s.

As[D] I was a [G]walking one[A] morning in[D] May,
I met a young couple who fondle did[A] stray,
[D]One was a young maid so sweet and so[A] fair,
And the[D] other was a[G] soilder and a[A] brave grena[D]dier.
[Chorus]
And they kissed so sweet and comforting,as they clung to each other,
They went arm and arm along the road like sister and brother,
They went arm and arm along the road,till they came to a streem,
And the both sat down togeather love to hear the nightingale sing.
[2]
From out of his knapsack he took out a fine fiddle,
And he played her such merry tunes that you ever did hear,
Ans he played her such merry tunes that the vallys did ring,
And they both sat down togeathe love to hear the nightingale sing.
[3]
Oh soldier,Oh soldier will you marry me,
Oh no said the soldier that never can be,
For I have my own wife in my own country,
And she is the sweetest thing that you ever did see
[Chorus after each verse]
