CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G  Em  D  G  Em  D  C

[Verse 1]
    G         Em        C       G
The time draws near, my dearest dear
     Em      Am     D
When you and I must part
    G      Em      C         G
You cannot know my grief and woe
   Am      Em     C
In my poor aching heart
     Am           D
'Tis how I suffer for your sake
  Em       D           C   D7
Believe me, love, it's true
  G         Em       C       G
I wish that you were staying here
    Em      D       C
For I would go with you


[Verse 2]
  G       Em          C       G
I wish my breast were made of glass
     Em     Am      D
Wherein you might behold
 G      Em           C        G
Upon my heart to the many I's wrote
   Am      Em      C
In letters made of gold
   Am              D
In letters made of gold, my love
  Em D     C    G C    D7
Believe me when I say
    G       Em      C     G
You are the darling of my heart
  Em     D     C
Until my dying day


[Verse 3]
    G     Em        C         G
And every day would seem like two
    Em    Am         D
And every hour, like ten
  G       Em         C       G
I lay and weep or forsake my sleep
     Am    Em   C
'Til I see you again
     Am         D
'Til I see you again, my love
      Em D   C    G   C   D7
There is  no rest for me
   G          Em       C     G
No dreams foretold within my heart
   Em          D         G
Of love, sweet love with thee


[Verse 4]
                Em      C       G
And when you're in some foreign land
      Em            Am     D
Well, think of your absent friend
    G        Em         C        G
And when the wind blows high and clear
  Am     Em    C
A letter to me send
    Am                  D
And when the wind blows high and clear
     Em   D   C    G  C   D7
Pray send his love to me
     G     Em      C        G
That I may know by your handwrite
   Em         D         C
Of times I've gone with thee

[Verse 5]
    G        Em        C    G
The blackest crow that ever flew
      Em     Am      D
Would surely turn to white
   G    Em      C        G
If ever I prove false to you
       Am        Em      C
Bright day would turn to night
       Am                D
Bright day would turn to night, my love
    Em D  C  G     C      D7
The elements would mourn
   G    Em      C        G
If ever I prove false to you
    Em         D        C
The seas would rage and burn
