CAPO: 4th Fret



                    D      G  D 
By the banks of the river 
          G            D     G  D
Where the willows hang down
                       Bm     G 
And the wild birds all warble___
                          D      G  D
With their high, lonesome sound
             Bm     G 
Down in some hollow___
                     D     G  D
Where the waters run cold
                     C         G 
It was there I first listened 
                     D     G  D
To the lies that you told


                                  G  D 
If the young men were blackbirds 
    G              D         G  D
The young men were thrushes
                   Bm    G 
I would lay by the hours___
                  D        G  D
In the cold rainy marshes
                      Bm     G 
If the young men were squirrels 
                D     G  D
With high bushy tails
               C         G 
I'd fill up my shotgun 
                   D    
With rock salt and nails


INSTRUMENTAL: D  G  D  G  D  G  D  Bm  G  D  G  D  
              Bm  G  D  G  D  C  G  D  G  D


                    G  D 
Now I lie in my bed_____
      G              D     G  D
And I see your sweet face
             Bm     G 
The past I remember___
             D     G  D
Time cannot erase
                Bm      G 
The letters you wrote me__
                D      G  D
Were written in shame
                     C          G 
And I know that your conscience 
          D     G  D
Echoes my name


                             G  D 
Lord, I lie here each night 
     G          D     G  D
All alone and I weep
              Bm    G 
Nothing ain't worse 
                     D     G  D
Than a night without sleep
            Bm   G 
I walk out alone___
          D   G  D
Under the sky
             C      G 
Too empty to sing 
                D     G  D
Too lonesome to cry


INSTRUMENTAL: D  G  D  G  D  G  D  Bm  G  D  G  D  
              Bm  G  D  G  D  C  G  D  G  D


                              G  D 
If the ladies were blackbirds____
        G              D         G  D
And the young men were thrushes
                  Bm    G 
I'd lie there for hours___
                  D        G  D
In the cold rainy marshes
                   Bm     G 
If the ladies were squirrels 
                D      G  D
With high bushy tails
               C        G 
I'd fill up my shotgun___
                   D     G  D
With rock salt and nails
               C        G 
I'd fill up my shotgun___
                   D     G  D
With rock salt and nails
