Darcy Farrow chords
John Denver  (Tom Campbell and Steve Gillette 1965)

Capo I *

E E7 A E  E7 E B  E E7 A E  A E A E

          E           E7          A             E
Where the walker runs down to the Carson Valley Plain
              E7            E              B
There lived a maiden, Darcy Farrow was her name
    E               E7           A            E
The daughter of old Dundee and a fair one was she
    A        E           A                E
The sweetest flower that bloomed over the range

    E            E7           A        E
Her voice was as sweet as the sugar candy
                 E7        E            B
Her touch was as soft as a bed of goose down
    E          E7              A      E
Her eyes shone bright like the pretty lights
     A            E            A          E
That shine in the night out of Yerrington town

E       E7         A          E
She was courted by Young Vandamere
               E7    E       B
A fine lad was he as I am to hear
   E               E7        A    E
He gave her silver rings and lacy things
        A           E              A               E
And she promised to wed before the snows came that year

        E        E7          A       E
But her pony did stumble and she did fall
                      E7           E       B
Her dying touched the hearts of us one and all
      E            E7         A                  E
Young Vandy in his pain put a bullet through his brain
       A             E             A              E
And we buried them together as the snows began to fall

E E7 A E  E7 E B  E E7 A E  A E A E

     E             E7               A            E
They sing of Darcy Farrow where the Truckee runs through
                 E7                 E    B
They sing of her beauty in Virginia City too
   E        E7          A                 E
At dusky sundown to her name they drink a round
    A        E           A        E
And to young Vandy whose love was true

E E7 A E
