Play the above 3 times for the Intro before walking up to C on the fifth string like: 0-2-3


C        G/C                 Am
I fell in love with a girl of nineteen [2-0-2 on 4th as in Intro]
C             G/C    Am
A black-haired girl I called Abilene [Walk up to C on 5th]
C    G/C   Am
Young girl, where's your husband?
C            G/C            Am
Sadly, she replied, I do not have one
C                 G/C   Am
Then it's you I'll marry with your parents' permission
[humming: Am - C - G/C - Am ]


C      G/C   Am
No fine sir, they will not let me marry
   C
For I am a young girl
   G/C                   Am
And you are a man without money
          C             G/C
Then I'll come by your window
Am
Tonight when they both will be sleeping
[humming: Am - C - G/C - Am ]


C          G/C     Am
Outside your window in a carriage I will be waiting
       C                 G/C
They'll awake to find you gone
          Am
Open their eyes and think they're dreaming
   C              G/C
And never did they think
          Am
That their Abilene would leave them
[humming: Am - C - C/G - Am ]


C       G/C   Am
Now fine sir, where is it you shall take me?
      C               G/C
Is it in the mountains high
  Am
Or is it the deep blue sea?
[humming: Am - C - G/C - Am ]
