GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN

(Carter Family)

[G]Darling, how can I stay here with[D]out you

I have [D7]nothing to cheer my poor [G]heart

This old [C]world would seem sad, love, [G]without you

Tell me [D]now that we're [D7]never to [G]part


CHORUS:  I will [C]pawn you my gold watch and [G]chain, love

I will [D]pawn you my gold wedding [G]ring

I will [C]pawn you this heart in my [G]bosom

Only [D]say that you'll [D7]love me [G]again

 

INSTRUMENTAL

Take back all the gifts you have given
But a ring and a lock of your hair
And a card with your picture upon it
It's a face that is false, but is fair

CHORUS  + INSTRUMENTAL


Tell me why that you do not love me
Tell me why that your smile is not bright
Tell me why you have grown so cold-hearted
Is there no kiss for me, love, tonight

CHORUS  + INSTRUMENTAL
