Joan Baez - Silver Dagger Chords

[intro] x2
Db  Gb

[Verse 1]
     Db                         Gb
Don't sing love songs you'll wake my mother,
              Db             Ebm
She's sleeping here right by my side,
           B                    Abm
And in her right hand, a silver dagger
           Ebm B          Db          B
She says that I   can't be your bride

[Verse 2]
Db                              Gb
  All men are false, says my mother,
                Db             Ebm
They'll tell you wicked, lovin' lies.
           B                    Abm
The very next evening, they'll court another,
            Ebm B       Db        B
Leave you alone  to pine and sigh.

[Verse 3]
Db                  Gb
  My daddy is a handsome devil
           Db             Ebm
He's got a chain five miles long,
           B                Abm
And on every link a heart does dangle
         Ebm   B          Db           B
Of another maid he's loved and wronged.

[Verse 4]
Db                    Gb
  Go court another tender maiden,
                Db             Ebm
And hope that she will be your wife,
           B                    Abm
For I've been warned, and I've decided
        Ebm   B       Db      B   Db
To sleep alone all of my life.
