     Dm                        Gm
Last fall I hunted white-tail deer
                     A  G/A F/A E/A
my dog and gun with me
   F                    C
I wandered to a shady grove
      Bb    C         F
where ivy grew dark green
      Bb    C         Dm
where ivy grew dark green

   Dm                     Gm
I raised my gun so carefully
                     A  G/A F/A E/A
and fired into the trees
      F                       C
then saw it was my true love fell
       Bb      C        F
in a dress of darkest green
    Bb      C        Dm
a dress of darkest green

     Dm                      Gm
Her eyes reflected back the moon
                             A  G/A F/A E/A
as I carried her back to my car
     F                      C
but as I crossed the empty road
       Bb       C      F
was a dead deer in my arms
   Bb       C      Dm
a dead deer in my arms

      Dm                     Gm
Next night I rowed upon the waves
                    A  G/A F/A E/A
to catch a leaping fish
     F                       C
but on the hook my lover's heart
   Bb          C     F
I pulled from briny depths
   Bb           C    Dm
I pulled from briny depths

Dm                        Gm
As I lay her cold corpse down
                     A  G/A F/A E/A
in the bottom of my boat
F                    C
   it was a jumping fish
       Bb     C        F
caught in my nets and rope
       Bb     C        Dm
caught in my nets and rope

       Dm                   Gm
Third night I spied a wild boar
                             A  G/A F/A E/A
charging madly through the trees
 F                          C
but I raised not my gun to her
      Bb      C       F
just let her come to me
      Bb      C     Dm
just let her run to me

    Dm                  Gm
And as I fell in mossy ferns
                             A  G/A F/A E/A
as her teeth grabbed hold of me
    F                       C
it was the lips of my true love
      Bb        C         F
that kissed me dark and green
 Bb        C         Dm
kissed me dark and green

Dm
