Thanks to Andy Gefen for tracking down the lyric to this one.


E                           A
There were two sisters came walking down the stream
D       A            E
Oh, the wind and the rain
E                     A
One behind pushed the other one in
       B       C#m      D        E
Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain

Johnny gave the youngest a gay gold ring
Oh, the wind and the rain
Didn't give the oldest one anything
Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain

Pushed her into the river to drown
Oh, the wind and the rain
And watched her as she floated down
Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain

She floated 'till she came to a fisher in the pond
Oh, the wind and the rain
Cryin' father, oh father there swims a swan
Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain

Miller pulled her out with his drifting hook
Oh, the wind and the rain
And pulled that fair maid from the brook
Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain

Melody Riff
Left her on the bank to dry Cryin' Oh, the wind and the rain And a fiddling fool come passing by Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain Out of the woods came a fiddler fair Oh, the wind and the rain He took thirty strands of her long yellow hair Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain And he made a fiddle bow of her long yellow hair Oh, the wind and the rain And he made a fiddle bow of her long yellow hair Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain He made fiddle pegs of her long finger bones Oh, the wind and the rain He made fiddle pegs of her long finger bones Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain And he made a little fiddle of her breast bone Oh, the wind and the rain Whose sound could melt a heart of stone Cryin' oh, the dreadful wind and rain And the only tune that fiddle would play was Oh, the wind and the rain The only tune that fiddle would play was Oh, the dreadful wind and rain
