[Verse 1]
Am                   C    G           F                 Am
When first I came to Louisville, some pleasure there to find
                    C     G       F              Am 
A damsel there from Lexington was pleasing to my mind
                     C    G          F                 Am
Her rosy cheeks, her ruby lips, like arrows pierced my breast
                          C  G       F           Am 
And the name she bore was Flora, the lily of the west.
                          C  G       F           Am 
And the name she bore was Flora, the lily of the west.

[Verse 2]
Am               C  G       F               Am
I courted lovely Flora some pleasure for to find
                    C       G         F                  Am
But she turned unto another man whose sore distressed my mind
                    C    G     F               Am
She robbed me of my liberty, deprived me of my rest
                   C  G       F           Am
Then go, my lovely Flora, the lily of the west.
                   C  G       F           Am
Then go, my lovely Flora, the lily of the west.

[Verse 3]
Am                  C     G        F           Am
Away down in yonder shady grove, a man of high degree
                   C     G         F                    Am
Conversin' with my Flora there, it seemed so strange to me
                        C       G      F           Am
And the answer that she gave to him it sore did me oppress
                  C  G       F           Am
I was betrayed by Flora, the lily of the west.
                  C  G       F           Am
I was betrayed by Flora, the lily of the west.

[Verse 4]
Am              C  G   F            Am
I stepped up my rival, dagger in my hand
                    C  G        F               Am
I seized him by the collar, and boldly made him stand
                C   G      F                  Am 
Seing mad by desperation I pierced him to the breast 
                    C  G       F           Am
All this for lovely Flora, the lily of the west.
                    C  G       F           Am
All this for lovely Flora, the lily of the west.

[Verse 5]
Am                C   G    F              Am
I had to stand my trial, I had to make my plea
                      C       G       F                 Am
They placed me in the witness box and then commenced on me
                      C    G       F               Am
Although she swore my life away, deprived me of my rest
                          C  G       F           Am
Still I love my faithless Flora, the lily of the west.
                          C  G       F           Am
Still I love my faithless Flora, the lily of the west.
