CAPO ON 2 FRET

Intro: Am

 Am
 We met in the springtime

when the blossoms unfold,

the pastures were green
 EAm
and the meadows were gold.

 Am
 Our love was in flower

as summer grew on.

Her love like the leaves
 EAm
now have withered and gone.

 Am
 The roses have faded

there's frost at my door.

The birds in the morning
 EAm
don't sing anymore.

 Am
 The grass in the valley

is starting to die,

and out in the darkness
 EAm
the whippoorwills cry.

(Chorus:)
 F#
 Alone and forsaken
 C
by fate and by man.
 E
Oh Lord if you hear me
 Am
please hold my hand,
 EAm
oh please understand.

 Am
 Oh where has she gone to,

oh where can she be.

She may have forsaken
 EAm
some other like me.

 Am
 She promised to honor,

to love and obey.

Each vow was a plaything
 EAm
that she threw away.

(Chorus:)
 F#
 Alone and forsaken
 C
by fate and by man.
 E
Oh Lord if you hear me
 Am
please hold my hand,
 EAm
oh please understand.

 Am
 The darkness has fallen,

the sky has turned gray,

the hound in the distance
 EAm
is starting to bay.

 Am
 I wonder, I wonder

what she's thinking of.

Forsaken, forgotten,
 EAm
without any love.

(Chorus:)
 F#
 Alone and forsaken
 C
by fate and by man.
 E
Oh Lord if you hear me
 Am
please hold my hand,
 EAm
oh please understand.

(Chorus:)
 F#
 Alone and forsaken
 C
by fate and by man.
 E
Oh Lord if you hear me
 Am
please hold my hand,
 EAm
oh please understand.

Outro: Am (let ring)
