somewhat pamled muted. It's a bit of a guess what Frank does here.

(Played mostly palm muted again)
[Verse]           
D                       G
It being the springtime of the year
D                        G
The flowers were freshly blooming
D                    G
A young man from my home country
        A                 D
Fell in love with Barbara Allen
D                            G
This young man took sick and went to bed
        D                     G
And he called out for Barbara Allen
    D                G
She came to him and softly said:
      A                   D
Young man I think you are dying
D                   G
I am not dying! the young man said
    D                   G
One kiss from you would cure me
    D                   G
One kiss from me you'll never see
         A                              D
Though I thought that you're heart was breaking
          D                 G
Or do you not remember last Sunday night
    D               G
Out in the ballroom dancing
    D                           G
You danced all night with the village bride
     A               D
and slighted Barbara Allen

[Verse]
   D                    G
He went and called a serving maid
    D                G
but she was slow in coming 
          D                    G
There’s a watch & chain in the window there
      A              D
Give them to Barbara Allen
      D                 G
She’d not been gone to very far
         D                      G
When she heard that church bell tolling
D                  G
Each toll that the bells did make
     A               D
Rang out for Barbara Allen
      D             G
She’d not covered a mile or two
         D                G
When she saw that Funeral Coming
    D                 G
Lay down lay down the corpse she cried
   A           D
So I may gaze upon him
     D                          G
They laid that down corpse down in the ground,
D                G
There she fell lamenting
   D             G
Oh why, oh why a young man cried
    A               D
Can this be Barbara Allen?

[Verse]
    D               G
She ran back to her father’s gate. 
D                    G
There she stopped lamenting
   D                    G
Oh Father Father dig my grave,
A               D
Dig it deep and narrow,
   D                 G
A young man died for me today,
     A           D
I’ll die for him tomorrow,

[Verse]
     D                       G
They both were buried in the old church yard
    D              G
but she was buried higher
  D              G
From her grave a red rose grew,
A     D   G      D
From his grave a briar
