LILY OF THE WEST  Joan Baez



When [Am]first I came to [C]Louis[G]ville
Some [F]pleasure there to [Am]find
A [C]damsel [F]there from Lexing[G]ton
Was [F]pleasing to my [Am]mind
Her [F]rosy cheeks, her ruby [G]lips
Like [Am]arrows pierced my breast
And the name she bore was [C]Flo[G]ra
The [C]Lily Of The [Am]West
I courted lovely Flora
Some pleasure there to find
She turned unto another man
Which sore distressed my mind
She robbed me of my liberty
Deprived me of my rest
Still I love my faithless Flora
The Lily Of The West
Down in yonder shady grove
A man of lowly breed
Conversing with my Flora there
It seemed so strange to me
And the answer that she gave to him
It sure did me oppress
I was betrayed by Flora
The Lily Of The West
I stepped up to my rival
My dagger in my hand
I grabbed him by the collar and
I boldly made him stand
Being mad to desperation
I pierced him in the breast
All for my lovely Flora
The Lily Of The West
I had to stand my trial
I had to make my plea
They placed me in the criminal box
And then commenced on me
Although she swore my life away
Deprived me of my rest
And I (still) love my faithless Flora
The Lily Of The West
