Verse 1:
      F                    F                   F
Dear Sarah I’m stuck on a train bound for Richmond.
                                  G
We marched down from Gurnstown uphill all the way.
        F                         F                    F
At the train stop in Stanton, we pulled up and climbed on
                              G           F
Then we just sat there for a night and a day.

Chorus:
 F                  G                      F
And the nights are long, but I write you ev’ry day.
             G             F
And I hum a song that you used to sing.
                              F             F
The one of sweet William his love, Barbara Allen
                  G                 F
And how she was always a long ways away.

F 

Verse 2:
    F                         F                   F
My insides are all torn from hard tack and parch corn.
                                   G
My hat flew in a windstorm so the sun has turned me red.
     F                           F               F
The first chance to lie still I pull out your Bible
                             G            F
But fall fast asleep before one verse is read.

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3:
      F                    F            F
Dear Sarah in parting keep me in your heart.
                                   G
I do not drink or gamble ‘cause I promised you I’d do.
       F              F                F
So as not to mislead you I did have a need to
                             G                   F
When we were surrounded and looked like we were through.  

(Repeat Chorus)

Tag:
     F                         F              F
The one of sweet William, his love Barbara Allen
                 G                  F
And how she was always a long ways away.

Ending:
   F        G           F                   G         F
In Scarlet Town, I did dwell. There was a fair maid a-dwellin’.
          G      F                  G       F
Many men cried, well, for the love Barbara Allen.
