Lily of the West
Key:Bb minor 

When first I came to Lou-is-ville
-4     -4 -8  -7  -8 -6*-6*  6
Some plea-sure there to find 
-5    -4   5*   -5   6   -4
A dam-sel there from Lex-ing-ton 
-7 -7 -6*  -7    -9  -9  -9  8*
Was pleas-in’ to my mind 
8*   -8   -7 -6* -7  -8
Her ro-sy cheeks, her ru-by lips 
-8  -8 -7  -8     -9  -9 -9  8*
Like ar-rows pierced my breast 
8*   -8 -7     -6*   -7   -8
And the name she bore was Flo-ra 
-4  -4  -4   -8   -7  -8  -6* 6
The Li-ly Of The West 
-5  -4 -4 -5  6   -4

I courted lovely Flora 
Some pleasure there to find 
"But" 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)"Then go my lovely" Flora
The Lily Of The West 

"Way" down in yonder shady grove 
A man of high degree
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 seized him by the collar and
I boldly made him stand
Being mad to desperation I pierced him in the breast
(All for) "Then go" my lovely Flora 
The Lily Of The West

"And" 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

Joan Baez
