Railroad Boy  Joan Baez

[Am] [E7] [Am] [G/B] [C] [Em/B] [Am] [F] [Am]  
[Verse 1] 
[Am]She went upstairs to [E7]make her [Am]bed
And not [G/B]a [C]word to her [Em/B]mother sa[Am]id.
[Am]Her mother she went [E7]upstairs [Am]too
[Am]Saying, "Daughter, [G/B]oh [C]daughter, what's [Em/B]troublin' [Am]you?"
[Verse 2] 
"[Am]Oh mother dear I [E7]cannot [Am]tell
That rail[G/B]road [C]boy that I l[Em/B]ove so we[Am]ll.
He's courted [Am]me my [E7]life a[Am]way
And now [G/B]at [C]home he will [Em/B]not [Am]stay."
[Verse 3] 
[Am]"There is a place in [E7]London [Am]town
That rail-[G/B]road [C]boy goes and [Em/B]sits him [Am]down.
[Am]And he takes a strange girl [E7]on his [Am]knee
[Am]And he tells [G/B]to [C]her what he [Em/B]won't tell [Am]me."
[Am] [E7] [Am] [G/B] [C] [Em/B] [Am] [F] [Am]  
[Verse 4] 
[Am]Her father he came [E7]home from [Am]work
Sayin', "Where's [G/B]my [C]daughter, she [Em/B]seems so [Am]hurt"
He went ups[Am]tairs to [E7]give her [Am]hope
An' he found [G/B]her [C]hangin' [Em/B]by a [Am]rope.
[Sbort verse] 
[Am]He took his knife and he [E7]cut her [Am]down
And on [G/B]her [C]bosom these [Em/B]words he [Am]found:
[Verse 5] 
"[Am]Go dig my grave both [E7]wide and [Am]deep,
Put a mar-[G/B]ble [C]stone at my h[Em/B]ead and [Am]feet,
[Am]And at my breast, put a [E7]white snow [Am]dove
[Am]To tell [G/B]the [C]world that I [Em/B]died of [Am]love. [G/B] [C] [Em/B] [Am] [F] [Am]
