And now I am the owner of,

His (A7)little house and (D)farm.

Treat Me Daughter Kindly Lyrics
 
Well once there lived a farmer,
A grand old soul was he,
He used to own a little farm,
Way down the country
He had an only daughter
And her I chanced to wed.
And when I asked him for her hand
Was this to me he said.
 
[chorus]
O' treat me daughter kindly
And keep her from all harm,
And when I die my will to you
My little house and farm,
My horse my dog my cow
And my bonny sheef and farm
And all the little chickens
'round the garden
 
 
I knew I loved this darling girl
And she to me the same
And when my daily work was done
With her I would remain
For to watch her milk her father's cows,
And shade them from all harm,
And many a glass of stout I had,
Before I left the farm.
 
 
O' treat me daughter kindly
And keep her from all harm,
And when I die my will to you
My little house and farm,
My horse my dog my cow
And my bonny sheef and farm
And all the little chickens
'round the garden
 
 
And now that we are married
And settled down for life,
I often think upon the words
Her father used to say,
For to treat his daughter kindly
And shade her from all harm,
And now I am the owner of,
His little house and farm.
 
 
O' treat me daughter kindly
And keep her from all harm,
And when I die my will to you
My little house and farm,
My horse my dog my cow
And my bonny sheef and farm
And all the little chickens
'round the garden
