Capo 5

   A           D          A       E
Oh hard is the fortune of all womankind
        A           D              A         E
They're always controlled, they're always confined
     A              D         A           E
Controlled by their parents until they are wives
     A               D            A           E
Then slaves to their husbands the rest of their lives

I am a poor girl, my fortune is sad
I've always been courted by the wagoner's lad
He's courted me daily, by night and by day
And now he is loaded and going away

Your parents don't like me because I am poor
They say I'm not worthy of entering your door
I work for my living, my money's my own
And if they don't like me they can leave me alone

Your horses are hungry, go feed them some hay
Come sit down beside me as long as you may
My horses ain't hungry, they won't eat your hay
So fare thee well darling, I'll be on my way

Your wagon needs greasing, your whip is to mend
Come here down beside me as long as you can
My wagon is greasy, my whip's in my hand
So fare thee well darling, I'll no longer stand

*Note: Sounds right to me when I play along with the song. They probably use fancier 
chords, but this is easy and works for me.
