The slide from 2 to 7 has to be quite fast. You can also play the second fret of the 
instead.

The trees they do grow high
    e                  a
The leaves they do grow green
    e                   G
   Many's the time my love I have seen
Bm                    e
   Many the hour I watched him on the go
C           a      e                  G
He's young but he's daily growing
     Bm             Bm


Riff 2X


Father, dear father
You've done to me great wrong
You've married me to a boy who is too young
I'm twice twelve and he is but fourteen
He's young but he's daily growing

Riff 2X

Daughter, dear daughter
I've done to you no wrong
I've married you to a rich man's son
He'll make a Lord for you to wed to borne
He's young but he's daily growing

Riff 2X

Oh father, dear father
If in you besee-ee fit
I'll send him to college for one year yet
I'll tie blue ribbons all around his head
To let the maidens know that he's married

Riff 2X

One day while I was walking
On my father's castle wall
I saw the boys, they were playin' with the ball
My own true love was the flower of them all
He's young but he's daily growing

Riff 2X

At the age of fifteen
He was a married man
The age of sixteen, a father of a son
The age of seventeen, the grass grew over him
Grew that soon put an end to his growing

Riff 2X

The trees they do grow high
    e                  a
The leaves they do grow green
    e                   G
   Many's the time my love I have seen
Bm                    e
   Many the hour I watched him all alone
C           a      e                  G
He's young but he's daily growing
     Bm             Bm
