Bob Dylan - Black Jack Davey


Verse 1:
Am
Black Jack Davey come ridin' on back
                     Em
A whistlin' loud and merry
Am
Made the woods around him ring
                               G  D
And he charmed the heart of a la--dy
                        G   D
Charmed the heart of a la--dy


Verse 2:
Am
How old are you, my pretty little miss
                     Em
How old are you, my honey?
Am
She answered to him with a lovin' smile
                       G    D
"I'll be sixteen come Sun--day
                 G    D
Be sixteen come Sun--day"


Verse 3:
Am
Come and go with me, my pretty little miss
                        Em
Come and go with me, my honey
Am
Take you where the grass grows green
                        G    D
You never will want for mon--ey
                        G    D
You never will want for mon--ey


Verse 4:
Am
Pull off, pull off them high-heeled shoes
                     Em
All made of Spanish leather
Am
Get behind me on my horse
                   G    D
And we'll ride off to--gether
                   G    D
We'll both go off to--gether


Verse 5:
Am
Well she pulled off them high-heeled shoes
                     Em
Made of Spanish Leather
Am
Got behind him on his horse
                   G  D
And they rode off to--gether
                   G   D
They both rode off to--gether


Verse 6:
Am
At night the boss came home
                     Em
Inquiring about his lady
Am
The servant spoke before she thought
                            G   D
"She's been with Black Jack Da--vey
                         G   D
Rode off with Black Jack Da--vey"


Verse 7:
Am
Well, saddle for me my coal-black stud
                       Em
He's speedier than the gray
Am
I rode all day and I'll ride all night
                     G   D
And I'll overtake my la--dy
                   G    D
I'll bring back my la--dy


Verse 8:
Am
Well, he rode all night till the broad daylight
                        Em
Till he came to a river ragin'
Am
And there he spied his darlin' bride
                          G   D
In the arms of Black Jack Da--vey
                           G   D
Wrapped up with Black Jack Da--vey


Verse 9:
Am
Pull off, pull off them long blue gloves
                       Em
All made of the finest leather
Am
Give to me your lily-white hand
                  G    D
And we'll go home to--gether
                   G   D
We'll both go home to-gether


Verse 10:
Am
Well, she pulled off them long blue gloves
                       Em
All made of the finest leather
Am
Gave to him her lily-white hand
                  G    D
And said goodbye for--ever
              G     D
Bid farewell for--ever


Verse 11:
Am
Would you forsake your house and home
                       Em
Would you forsake your baby?
Am
Would you forsake your husband too
                      G   D
To go with Black Jack Da--vey
                         G   D
Ride off with Black Jack Da--vey?


Verse 12:
Am
Well, I'll forsake my house and home
                     Em
And I'll forsake my baby
Am
I'll forsake my husband too
                           G   D
For the love of Black Jack Da--vey
                   G   D
Love my Black Jack Da--vey


Verse 13:
Am
Last night I slept in a feather bed
                       Em
Between my husband and baby
Am
Tonight I lay on the river banks
                          G   D
In the arms of Black Jack Da--vey
                   G   D
Love my Black Jack Da--vey
