Capo on 3rd Fret for John's version

This version of the song involves a lot of hammer-ons and pull-offs with your pinky 
finger. If you find it too hard you can play plain D instead of D5 and D4!

   D5     D4

D5                    D4 D        G             D
Where the walker runs down to the Carson Valley Plain
G             D             D5     D4  D   A
There lived a maiden, Darcy Farrow was her name
D5                  D4  D        G            D
The daughter of old Dundee and a fair one was she
    G   A    D     G     D       A 
The sweetest flower that bloomed over the range

D   D5           D4 D         G        D
Her voice was as sweet as the sugar candy
    G            D         D5  D4  D    A
Her touch was as soft as a bed of goose down
D   D5         D4  D           G      D
Her eyes shone bright like the pretty lights
     G     A      D     G      D      
A   D
That shine in the night out of Yerrington town

D5      D4  D      G          D
She was courted by Young Vandamere
G              D  D5   D4 D  A
A fine lad was he as I am to hear
D  D5              D4 D     G     D
He gave her silver rings and lacy things
        G  A       D   G           D     
A        D
And she promised to wed before the snows came that year

D       D5       D4  D       G       D
But her pony did stumble and she did fall
    G                 D         D5     D4 D A
Her dying touched the hearts of us one and all
D5                 D4 D       G                  D
Young Vandy in his pain put a bullet through his brain
       G      A      D      G      D       
A      D
And we buried them together as the snows began to fall

D5                 D4 D             G            D
They sing of Darcy Farrow where the Truckee runs through
     G           D         D5       D4 D A
They sing of her beauty in Virginia City too
D5          D4 D        G                 D
At dusky sundown to her name they drink a round
    G  A     D    G      D    A   D
And to young Vandy whose love was true
