Bring Back My Blue Eyed Boy

A - E - A    - A - D - E - A

[A]Tis true the rain that has no [E]end

It's hard to find a faithful [A]friend

And when you find one just and [D]true

He's [E]dropped the old one for the [A]new

  

   [A]Bring back my blue eyed boy to [E]me

   Bring back my blue eyed boy to [A]me

   Bring back my blue eyed boy to [D]me

   That [E]I may ever happy [A]be

 

Must I go bound and have no free

Must I love a boy that don't love me

Or must I act the childish part

And love that boy that broke my heart

CHORUS     + A - E - A    - A - D - E - A

Last night my lover promised me

To take me across the deep blue sea

And now he's gone and left me alone

An orphan girl without a home

CHORUS

O dig my grave both wide and deep

Place marble at my head and feet

And on my breast a snow white dove

To show to the world I died for love

CHORUS     + A - E - A    - A - D - E - A
