Flora
Peter, Paul and Mary
Tabbed by Parkie

Capo on the third fret.

This is played very fast. At the end of each verse, use your little finger to play a G on the 
high string while playing the Am (002213-002210). Do the same with the Em in the intro too.
You can also get some lovely hammer-ons with any of these chords if they are played for more 
than about three beats:


    EADGBe     EADGBe
Am: 000210  -  002210
Em: 002000  -  022000
G:  300003  -  320003

Hope that makes sense. Good luck! 


Intro:
Am  Em  Am  Em  Am  Am  


Am                   C    G          C      D        Am
When first I came to Louisville, my fortune there to find,
Am                 C      Em         F      Em       Am
I met a fair young maiden there, her beauty filled my mind.
Am                  C     Em        Am      Em    Am
Her rosy cheek, her ruby lips, they gave my heart no rest.
Am                    C        D     Dm                  Am
The name she bore was Flo------ra,       the lily of the west.
 

Am               C  G       C        D        Am
I courted lovely Flora, she promised ne'er to go.
Am                  C       Em      F         Em         Am
But soon a tale was told to me that filled my heart with woe.
Am                    C     Em      Am       Em      Am
They said she meets another man who holds my love in jest.
Am                C      D     Dm                   Am
And yet I trusted Flo----ra,        the lily of the west. 


Am                  C     G        C       D    Am
'Way down in yonder shady grove, a man of low degree,
Am               C     Em        F           Em      Am
He spoke unto my Flora there and kissed her 'neath a tree.
Am                   C       Em       Am     Em         Am
The answers that she gave to him like arrows pierced my breast.
Am                C     D     Dm                   Am
I was betrayed by Flo---ra,        the lily of the west. 


Am                 C  G      C      D     Am
I stepped up to my rival, my dagger in my hand.
Am                  C      Em    F       Em     Am
I seized him by the collar and I ordered him to stand.
Am             C  Em    Am          Em     Am
All in my desperation I stabbed him in his breast.
Am                 C     D    Dm                    Am
I killed a man for Flo---ra,        the lily of the west. 


Am                C        G        C      D       Am
And then I had to stand my trial, I had to make my plea.
Am                  C          Em        Am    Em         Am
They placed me in a pris'ner's dock and then commenced on me.
Am                     C    Em     Am        Em    Am
Although she swore my life away, deprived me of my rest.
Am                        C     D    Dm                    Am
Still I love my faithless Flo---ra,        the lily of the west.



Lovely tune. Good luck finding a strumming pattern that works!
