Judy Collins - Lily Of The Valley


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
C  G  C  G

C           G
Lily of the Valley
C           G
Lily of the Valley
C           F   C   G
Lily of the Valley


[Verse 1]
                C           G              F                C
They called her Lily of the Valley and she lived beside the river
    F               C               F                 G
The youngest of her sisters and the prettiest of them all
        C              G            F                      C
She was courted by the men in town, she could have married anyone
    F                C                                  G
The one she made her husband was the handsomest of all


[Verse 2]
          C            G            F              C
They were married in a chapel, Lily bore him seven children
    F              C                F              G
And every night he put her down and made her feel ashamed
   C                 G                F             C
He took the face she used to wear and put a look of sorrow there
    F                C
The more he made her suffer, the more she felt to blame


[Chorus]
F             G           Am
No more tears Lily, don't cry anymore
Dm7                  F            G
Tears of yours won't fall another time
F         G         Am
Don't cry Lilly, we know how you've tried
Dm7               F              G
Fighting for your life was not a crime


[Verse 3]
C              G                F                  C
One night Lily turned to him, before he raised his hand to her
F                 C               F     G
One more time she said, "And not again"
   C                  G                 F                 C
He laughed and threw another punch, the blow knocked Lily to the floor
    F                   C                                           G
Somehow she grabbed the kitchen knife and stabbed her husband dead


[Verse 4]
    C           G            F             C
The jury they decided it was murder in the first degree
     F               C                  F               G
They said she had provoked him with her wild and wicked talk
     C                 G              F              C
They hanged her by the river where so many times she wandered
     F                 C
They left her children motherless, in sorrow and in shock


[Chorus]
F             G           Am
No more tears Lily, don't cry anymore
Dm7                  F            G
Tears of yours won't fall another time
F         G         Am
Don't cry Lilly, we know how you've tried
Dm7               F              G
Fighting for your life was not a crime


[Bridge]
  Am           Em         Am                Em
A soldier in a uniform is meant to kill the enemy
    Am                  Em         F                  G
But Lilly, in her own defence, was framed to take the fall
    Am                     Em                Am             Em
Her children watched their father beat their mother all too often
    Am              Em               F               G
The battlefields of families are the saddest of them all


[Verse 5]
    C                G           F                  C
The willow weeps for Lily as its branches touch the water
    F                C            F               G
The wind is crying, "Lily", as it sighs along the shore
    C                 G            F                 C
The river's singing, "Lily, we all know that you are innocent
F                 C
You were promised marriage, but you had to fight a war"


[Chorus]
F             G           Am
No more tears Lily, don't cry anymore
Dm7                  F            G
Tears of yours won't fall another time
F         G         Am
Don't cry Lilly, we know how you tried
Dm7               F              G
Fighting for your life was not a crime


[Outro]
C           G
Lily of the Valley
C           G
Lily of the Valley
C           F   C
Lily of the Valley
