Lily of the West (Peter, Paul and Mary)

Am C G C D Am When first I came to Louisville, my fortune there to find, Am C Em F C Em Em7 Am I met a fair young maiden there, her beauty filled my mind. Am C Em Am Em Em7 Am Her rosy cheek, her ruby lips, they gave my heart no rest. Am C D Dm Am G Am The name she bore was Flora, the Lily of the West. I courted lovely Flora, she promised never to go. But soon a tale was told to me that filled my heart with woe. They said she meets another man who holds my love in jest. And yet I trusted Flora, the lily of the west. 'Way down in yonder shady grove, a man of low degree, He spoke unto my Flora there and kissed her 'neath a tree. The answers that she gave to him like arrows pierced my breast. I was betrayed by Flora, the lily of the west. I stepped up to my rival, my dagger in my hand. I seized him by the collar and I ordered him to stand. All in my desperation I stabbed him in his breast. I'd killed a man for Flora, the lily of the west. And then I had to stand my trial, I had to make my plea. They placed me in a pris'ner's dock and then commenced on me. Although she swore my life away, deprived me of my rest, Still I love my faithless Flora, the lily of the west.
