Carter's Blues

D - A - D

[D]As I walked out one morning [A]fair
To view the fields and taste the [D]air
For to view the fields and nettles [A]around
I thought I heard some lonesome [D]sound
O thought I heard my true love [A]say
O do turn and come this [D]way

D - A - A7 - D        + D - A - D
( yodelling )

You love some other and you don't love me
You care not for my company
You love some other and I know why
Because he has more gold than I
But gold will melt and silver will fly
My love for you will never die

D - A - A7 - D        + D - A - D
( yodelling )

There is a flower I've heard them say
That can be seen from day to day
And if that flower I only could find
To cure this aching heart of mine

D - A - A7 - D        + D - A - D
( yodelling )

So fare you well my charming little love
O meet me in that land above
And when we meet there in that land
We'll take no more this parting hand

D - A - A7 - D      
( yodelling )
