Intro: G  --->


 -------->      D*            D       G
Don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother

               D*          D     Em
She's sleeping here, right by my side

                 C              Am
And in her right hand, a silver dagger

              Em       C       D
She said that I, can't be your bride




            D*     D       G
All men are false, said my mother

                 D*      D      Em
They'll tell you wicked, loving lies

                  C                      Am
And the very next evenin', they'll court another

          Em        C        D
Leave you alone, to pine and sigh




         D*      D        G
My daddy he's, a handsome devil

           D*     D       Em
He's got a chain, 5 miles long

             C                  Am
And on every link, a heart does dangle

           Em         C         D
Of another maid, he's loved and wronged




         D*       D      G
So court another, tender maiden

              D*        D       Em
And hope that she, will be your wife

                C                Am
For I have been warned, and I've decided

         Em         C     D
To sleep alone, all of my life



Repeats 1st verse and then ends

Sounds perfect. However, I listened to a few versions where it sounds as if the capo is on 7th. That's if you want to play along with the recording, though. Great tab!

Yep, capo's definitely on the 7th. This tab is great, though. Much appreciated!
