Ballad of Geraldine  Donovan

Ballad Of Geraldine - Donovan
Capo 4
G: 320003
C/G: 3X2013
D: 20032X
Oh, I[G] was [C/G]born with the [D]name Gera[G]ldine[C/G]
With h[G]air c[C/G]oal black as a r[G]aven.[C/G]
I t[G]ravelled my l[C/G]ife with[D]out a c[G]are,[C/G]
Ah, but a[G]ll my l[C/G]ove I was s[G]aving.
Oh, the winds blew high and the trees did sway,
Not much from life was I asking.
Till I met someone to give all my love,
All my love, so long and lasting.
Oh, good were the parts we played in our game
And a long ways off was tomorrow.
But my love was a rambler and restless as the sea,
And in the tide came sorrow.
Oh, a child of the night is goin' to be born,
I can't explain my confusion.
Is my love thinking to marry me at all
Or of the freedom he thinks he'll be losing?
I sit with my friends in the gay crowded room,
My friends they're smoking and a-talkin'.
But it all seems so empty, my love is not there,
So I'll go into the streets a-walkin'.
My baby is a-growin' as a-growin' it must,
If I were to lose it, it would grieve me.
My love is so helpless and I'm wonderin' what to do.
Oh, how I yearn to help him.
Oh, we could go to the land of your choice
Where the false shame won't come knockin' at our door.
I've a feeling in my heart and it's crushing all my hopes,
I think I'm gonna be hurt some more,
Oh, I was born with the name Geraldine,
With hair coal black as a raven.
I travelled my life without a care,
Ah, but all my love I was saving.
