Once I Knew a Pretty Girl  Joan Baez

capo 1
[Am]Em, G, H7
Em, H7, Em
Onc[Em]e I knew a pretty girl
I l[Am]oved her as my life
I'd gl[Em]adly give my h[G]eart and hand
To m[B7]ake her my wife
[Em]Ooh, to m[B7]ake her my w[Em]ife
Sh[Em]e took me by the hand
[Am]She led me to the door
She p[Em]ut her arms ar[G]ound me
Saying, Pl[B7]ease don't come no more
[Em]Ooh, Pl[B7]ease, come no m[Em]ore
Well, I'd not been gone
But about six months
When she did complain
And she wrote me a letter
Saying,please come back again.
Ooh, Please, come again
So I sent her an answer
Just for to let her know
That no young man should venture
Where once he could not go
Ooh, Where once he could not go.
So come all you young lovers
Take a warning from me
And never hang your affections
On a green, growing tree
Ooh, on a green, growing tree
For the leaves they will wither
Roots will decay
And the beauty of a young girl
Will soon fade away
Ooh, will soon fade away
