[Verse 1]
  D                               G
This cruel country has driven me down,
  A            D       G           A
Teased me and lied, teased me and lied,
      D                                G
I've only sad stories to tell to this town,
A                 A7          D
My dreams have withered, and ...died!


[Verse 2]
 G                    F#m              Em
Once I was bending the ...tops of the trees,
F#m                  Em         Em7       A
Kind thoughts in my head, kind voices to hear!

 D                                   G
Then I took up with a girl from the west,
  A             D      G              A
Played run and hide, played run and hide,
  D                                        G
Count one to ten, and she's gone like the rest,
A                 A7         D
My dreams have withered and died!


[Verse 4]
   G                  F#m             Em
If I was a butterfly,     lived for a day,
F#m          Em         Em7         A
 I could be free, just blowing a - way!

  D                                     G
Silver moon sail up, and silver moon - shine,
        A         D      G        A
On the waters so wide, waters so wide,
  D                                       G
Slipped from the bed of a good friend of mine,
A                 A7         D
My dreams have withered and died!


[Verse 6]
 G                     F#m          Em
Once I was bending the tops of the trees,
F#m             Em        Em7             A
Kind thoughts in my head, kind voices to hear!

      D                                G
I've only sad stories to tell to this town,
A                 A7          Bm
My dreams have withered, and died,
A                 A7          G
My dreams have withered, and died,
A                 A7          D      G
My dreams have withered, and died----------!
