Capo on 4th Fret. [Verse 1] A D Don't sing love songs you'll wake my mother, A Bm She's sleeping here right by my side, G Em And in her right hand, a silver dagger Bm-G A She says that I can't be your bride [Verse 2] (same chords progression) All men are false, says my mother, They'll tell you wicked, lovin' lies. The very next evening, they'll court another, Leave you alone to pine and sigh. [Verse 3] (same chords progression) My daddy is a handsome devil He's got a chain five miles long, And on every link a heart does dangle Of another maid he's loved and wronged. [Verse 4] (same chords progression) Go court another tender maiden, And hope that she will be your wife, For I've been warned, and I've decided To sleep alone all of my life.
