Chords (strumming version):


Waiting For You (I Forgive You Before I Go)
Mississippi John Hurt

G
Will you be faithful to me?
   C                   G
Is your heart good and true?
C                     G
While you sow sorrow, and in pain,
D                            *(riff)
Darling, I'm waiting for you.

G
Because of your cruel ways,
      C             G
I may never live to know.
   C          G
In justice to my true love,
       D                G
I'll forgive you before I go.

        rep. 1 & 2
        instrumental 1 & 2

If we cannot meet again
Till our troubles all are through,
Beyond the river of Jordan,
I'll still be waiting for you.

        rep. 2
        instrumental 1 & 2

When you seek my grassy mount,
Then our trouble all is through.
My days have been shortened
Whilst I've been waiting for you.

        rep. 2


*riff:

 D                         G
