Bm   D   G   D   Bm   F#   G   D
Bm   F#   G   D   Bm   D   G   D

D                 F#        Bm      G
Come on my friends. Through out the land. 
     D       F#        Bm        G        D
Take this, advice from me. 

             F#          Bm     G
Quit your drinkin', that old brandy. 
      D         F#       D       Bm
Don't live like Frank Dupree. 
                   F#          Bm     G
Frank he was captured, and he went to trial.
    D                  F#       Bm       G
The judge said, you'll never be free.

          D           F#m      D          Bm
You'll be hung on the gallows tree.

                              Em       Bm
Mother and father, won't you come here.
                           Em       F#       D
Come see the last, of your son.
                      F#         G         Bm
Do you see what the ramblin and drinkin the rum.
         G                D
And the spoiled life has done.

              F#           Bm                G
Lookin at my mother, these words she said to me.
   D        F#       Bm       G
Oh son. Oh son, what have you done. 
               D                 D          Bm
That you've be hung on the gallows tree. 

                        F#
Well I've courted many girls 
       Bm              G
With a dark and rollin eyes.
   D     F#           Bm    G
I ask my love, for to marry me.
    D      F#    D      Bm
And no was her reply.

                        Em       Bm
We walked along quite easily.
                          Em       F#       D
From the hills we came on down. 
              Am      F#          Bm
I stabbed her with my little thin knife. 
        G               D
And she fell off on the ground. 


[Instrumental]
D   F#   Bm   G x4
D   Am   D

            F#      Bm      G
So listen to, these words I say.
      D         F#    Bm     G
Don't let, yourself become.
  D      F#      Bm       G
A lover, of this dreadful life. 
      D       F#     D
And a drinker of the rum. 


Bm   D   G   D x3
Bm   Am   G   D
