*CAPO 2nd FRET*

(Original Key: E)


Intro:

D  Dsus4  D (x2)

Verse 1:

Em           G                  D    Dsus4  D
 This is the story of Bobby and June.
Em           G                      D
 A boy and a girl who kidnapped the moon.

A                             G
 But they fell in love to the sounds of guns,
Em            G              D   Dsus4  D
 The year was Eighteen Sixty One.

Verse 2:

Em             G                     D     Dsus4  D
 The army came looking for men to re-cruit.
Em                     G                      D      Dsus4
 Dressin' boys up like soldiers in blue Union suits.

A                                    G
 Take this sword and cut down Johnny Reb, they said.
Em                  G                         D    Dsus4  D
 You'll come back a hero, or you'll come back dead.

Chorus 1:

G             A                 G           A
 Stay with me Bobby; don't go a-way from me now.
           G            A                   G           A
I want you say that you love me; don't go a-way from me now.
  G           D
I want you to stay.

Interlude:

D  Dsus4  D (x2)

Verse 3:

Em            G                         D     Dsus4  D
 Now Bobby he marched to the eye of the storm,
Em                   G                            D
 The blue coats were falling; the blood was still warm.

A                                        G
 A battle was raging, and the only thing in his eyes,
Em                      G                  Dsus4  D
 Was the thought of his June and making it home a-live.

Verse 4:

Em            G                         D   Dsus4  D
 His army out-numbered; they started to run.
Em               G                        D   Dsus4
 When Bobby went down with the crack of a gun.

A                                     G
 And as he lay still his face sinking in the rain,
Em               G                    Dsus4       D
 He knew that he never and ever would see, June a-gain.

Chorus 2:

G             A                 G           A
 Stay with me Bobby; don't go a-way from me now.
           G            A                   G           A
I want you say that you love me; don't go a-way from me now.
  G           D
I want you to stay.

Interlude:

D  Dsus4  D (x2)

Verse 5:

Em                     G                           D     Dsus4  D
 It was the morning of Christmas when June heard a sound,
Em             G                               D             Dsus4
 Of someone ap-proaching, their boots scraping on the ground.

A                                               G
 As she looked out the window her heart pounded in, her breast,
Em              G                     Dsus4   D
 A broken young Bobby was clutching a wounded chest.

Break:

Bm
 She ran out to help ease his pain.
G
 He looked up and whispered her name.
Bm                                            G
 Then she cradled his head in her arms and he smiled,
        A
When he heard his June say...

Chorus 3:

G             A                 G           A
 Stay with me Bobby; don't go a-way from me now.
           G            A                   G           A
I want you say that you love me; don't go a-way from me now.
  G           D
I want you to stay.

Outro:

D  Dsus4  D (x2)

              D    Dsus4  D, D  Dsus4, D
I want you to stay.
