(words from the Joan Baez version)


ACome all ye fair and tender ladies.
E BmBe careful how you court young men.
E Bm AThey're like a star on a summer's morning.
E Bm E A Asus4*They'll first appear and then they're gone.
AThey'll tell you some loving story
E BmThey'll declare to you their love is true
E Bm AThen they will go and court some other
E Bm E A Asus4*And that's the love they have for you
ADo you remember our days of courting
E BmWhen your head lay upon my breast
E Bm AYou could make me believe with falling of your arm
E Bm E A Asus4*That the sun rose in the West
AI wish I was a little sparrow,
E BmAnd I had wings with which to fly
E Bm ARight over to see my false true-lover,
E Bm E A Asus4*And when he's talking I'd be nigh.
ABut I'm not a little sparrow,
E BmI have no wings with which to fly
E Bm ASo I sit here in grief and sorrow,
E Bm E ATo weep and pass my troubles by.
* optional Set8
