C                    F  Dm                        C
On the banks of the river where the willows hang down
C                       Am  F                     C                
And the wild birds all warble with a low moaning sound
C            Am   F                      C
Down in the hollow where the waters run cold
C                      F     Dm                    C
It was there I first listened to the lies that you told


C                F Dm                     C
Now I lie on my bed and I see your sweet face
C           Am     F             C
The past I remember time cannot erase
C              Am   F                      C   
The letter you wrote me it was written in shame
C                      F       Dm                C
And I know that your conscience still echo's my name


C                   F     Dm                  C
Now the nights are so long, Lord sorrow runs deep
C               Am  F                       C
And nothing is worse than a night without sleep
C              Am  F                 C
I'll walk out alone and look at the sky
C              F Dm                 C
Too empty to sing, too lonesome to cry

C                    F       Dm                     C
If the ladies were blackbirds and the ladies were thrushes
C                  Am  F                      C
I'd lie there for hours in the chilly cold marshes
C                   Am       F                  C
If the ladies were squirrel's with high bushy tails
C               F    Dm                    C
I'd fill up my shotgun with rock salt and nails
