[Verse 1]

Am                D       Am
    I was born in East Virginia,
          Dm         Am
North Carolina I did roam.
        A  A7             D
There I met a fair pretty maiden;
             Am E7        Am Asus2 Am  Asus2
Her name and age I do not know.

[Verse 2]

Am                      D          Am        
   Her hair it was of a brightsome color
        Dm           Am
And her lips of ruby red.
       A  A7                 D
On her breast she wore white lilies;
        Am     E7        Am Asus2 Am  Asus2
There I longed to lay my head.

[Verse 3]

Am                        D      Am
    Well, in my heart you are my darlin',
      Dm                   Am
At my door you are welcome in.
      A  A7                  D
At my gate I'll meet you, my darlin';
        Am  E7            Am Asus2 Am  Asus2
If your love I could only win.

[Verse 4]

Am                  D         Am
   I'd rather be in some dark holler
          Dm             Am
Where the sun refused to shine
        A  A7                    D
Than to see you be another man's darlin
       Am  E7                    Am Asus2 Am  Asus2
And to know that you'll never be mine.

[Verse 5]

Am                         D              Am
    Well, in the night I'm dreaming about you,
       Dm            Am
In the day I find no rest.
         A    A7            D
Just the thought of you, my darlin',
             Am   E7              Am Asus2 Am  Asus2
Sends aching pains all through my breast.

[Verse 6]

Am                          D     Am
    Well, when I'm dead and in my coffin
        Dm                     Am
With my feet turned toward the sun
         A  A7           D
Come and sit  beside me, darlin',
         Am   E7              Am  Asus2 Am  Asus2 Am Asus2 Am
Come and think on the way you done.
