Subject: CRD: Lily of the West/Joan Baez
Lily of the West - Arrangement by Joan Baez
This comes from the Joan Baez's "Ring them Bells" CD.
On that CD the guitars are tuned down 1/2 step and in
Standard tuning.

When first I came to Louisville
F Am
Some pleasure there to find
C F G
A damsel there from Lexington
F Am
Was pleasing to my mind
F G
Her rosy cheeks, her ruby lips
Am
Like arrows pierced my breast
C G
And the name she bore was Flora
C Am
The Lily Of The West
I courted lovely Flora
Some pleasure there to find
She turned unto another man
Which sore distressed my mind
She robbed me of my liberty
Deprived me of my rest
Still I love my faithless Flora
The Lily Of The West
Down in yonder shady grove
A man of lowly breed
Conversing with my Flora there
It seemed so strange to me
And the answer that she gave to him
It sure did me oppress
I was betrayed by Flora
The Lily Of The West
I stepped up to my rival
My dagger in my hand
I grabbed him by the collar and
I boldly made him stand
Being mad to desperation
I pierced him in the breast
All for my lovely Flora
The Lily Of The West
I had to stand my trial
I had to make my plea
They placed me in the criminal box
And then commenced on me
Although she swore my life away
Deprived me of my rest
And I (still) love my faithless Flora
The Lily Of The West
