The Cherry Tree Carol

     D      G      D        G  D 
When Joseph was an old man, an old man was he
A  D              G D
He married Virgin Mary the Queen of Galilee
A  D              G D               A   D
He married Virgin Mary the Queen of Galilee


Then Mary spoke to Joseph so meek and so mild
Joseph, gather me some cherries for I am with child
Joseph, gather me some cherries for I am with child

Then Joseph grew in anger, in anger grew he
Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee
Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee

Then Jesus spoke a few words, a few words spoke He
Let my mother have some cherries, bow low down cherry tree
Let my mother have some cherries, bow low down cherry tree

The cherry tree bowed down, bowed down to the ground
And Mary gathered cherries while Joseph stood around
And Mary gathered cherries while Joseph stood around
