Joan Baez – Once I Knew A Pretty Girl chords


capo 1

Em, G, H7
Em, H7, Em


Em Once I knew a pretty girl
AmI loved her as my life
Em G I'd gladly give my heart and hand
H7To make her my wife
Em H7 EmOoh, to make her my wife
Em She took me by the hand
Am She led me to the door
Em GShe put her arms around me
H7Saying, Please don't come no more
Em H7 EmOoh, Please, come no more
Well, I'd not been gone But about six months When she did complain And she wrote me a letter Saying,please come back again. Ooh, Please, come again So I sent her an answer Just for to let her know That no young man should venture Where once he could not go Ooh, Where once he could not go. So come all you young lovers Take a warning from me And never hang your affections On a green, growing tree Ooh, on a green, growing tree For the leaves they will wither Roots will decay And the beauty of a young girl Will soon fade away Ooh, will soon fade away
