         TAKE HER OUT OF PITY     Kingston Trio

C Am F G7

   C               Am            F             G7
1.)I had a sister Sally She was younger than I am
2.)We had a sister Sally, She was ugly and misshapen
C             Am             F       G7
Had so many sweethearts she had to deny them
By the time she was sixteen years old she was taken
C                  Am
But as for sister Sarah 
By the time she was eighteen
F                   G7
You know she hasn't many
A son and a daughter
C                    Am              F           G7
And if you know her heart she'd be grateful for any
Sarah's almost twenty nine never had an offer
G7       C         Am          F          G7
Come a landsman, a pinsman, a tinker or a tailor,
C           Am        F          G7
Doctor, a lawyer, a soldier or sailor
   C           Am          F         G7
A rich man, a poor man, a fool or a witty
       C             Am
Don't let her die an old maid
     F               G7
But take her out of pity

3.)She never would be scoldin She never would be jealous 
Her husband would have money to go to the alehouse
He was there a-spendin She'd be home a-savin
and I leave it up to you if she is not worth havin

       C               Am            F              D9
Don't let her die and old maid but take her out of pity
