Intro: D 

                  A                    D
Don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother
                 A               Bm
She's sleeping here right by my side
                   G            Em
And in her right hand a silver dagger,
              Bm                A
She says that I can't be your bride.

             A                 D
All men are false, says my mother,
                  A               Bm
They'll tell you wicked, lovin' lies.
                  G                     Em                
The very next evening, they'll court another,
            Bm                A
Leave you alone to pine and sigh.

My daddy is a handsome devil
             A                Bm
He's got a chain five miles long,
               G                  Em
And on every link a heart does dangle
            Bm                    A
Of another maid he's loved and wronged.

Go court another tender maiden,
               A                 Bm
And hope that she will be your wife,
                G                  Em
For I've been warned, and I've decided
           Bm               A
To sleep alone all of my life.

Lovely little song originally by Joan Baez, covered by the Fleet Foxes in 2009
