C  F  C

[Verse 1]

C                        F                        C
On the banks of the river where the willows hang down
                    Am    F                C
And wild birds all warble with a low moaning sound
                Am     F                    C
Way down in the hollow where the water runs cold
                     F                            C
That's where I first listened to the lies that you told

[Verse 2]

C                   F                    C
Now I lie on my bed and I see your sweet face
              Am        F       C
The past I remember time cannot erase
               Am       F                 C
The letter you wrote me it was written in shame
                    F                         C
And I know that your conscience still echo's my name

[Verse 3]

C                    F                       C
Now the nights are so long, and sorrow runs deep
                 Am      F                 C
And nothing is worse than a night without sleep
               Am      F            C
I'll walk out alone, I look at the sky
              F                    C
Too empty to sing, too lonesome to cry

[Verse 4]

C                     F                             C
So if you ladies were blackbirds, if you ladies were thrushes
                   Am     F                C
I'd lie there for hours in the cold chilly marshes
                    Am       F               C
If you ladies were squirrel's with high bushy tails
                F                        C
I'd fill up my shotgun with rock salt and nails

Last line of each stanza is Bb to F to C, not just F to C.

I disagree sir. If you want to add some fanciness walk the F root on the D string down to E to D then to the C on A.
