Blackjack David  Dave Alvin

Traditional / Dave Alvin - Bb
[G]Blackjack David came a-ridin through the woods
Singin so loud and merry
Voice was ringin through the green, green fields
When he [Em]spied a fair-haired [G]maiden
[Am7]Spied a fair-haired [G]maiden
Listen here lass, my name is Jack
And I come from afar
Lookin for a fair-haired lass like you
To come to be my bride, come to be my bride
Now, would you forsake your husband, dear
Would you forsake your baby
Would you forsake your fine, fine home
To go with the Blackjack David, go with Blackjack David
Yes, Id forsake my husband, dear, Id forsake my baby
Id forsake my fine, fine home, to go with you Blackjack David
To go with you Blackjack David
She put on her high-heel boots, made of Spanish leather
He pulled her behind him then, they both rode off together, both rode off together
Well, last night she slept in a fine, fine bed, beside her husband and baby
Tonight, she sleeps on the cold, cold ground, beside her Blackjack David
Beside her Blackjack David
Beside her Blackjack David, beside her Blackjack David
