Testo Silver Dagger – Joan Baez

Testo della canzone Silver Dagger di Joan Baez
Album: Unknown
Don’t sing love songs
You’ll wake my mother
She’s sleeping here right by my side
In her right hand, a silver dagger
She says that I can’t be your bride
All men are false
Says my mother
They’ll tell you wicked
Lovin’ lies
And then the very next evening
They’ll court another
Leave you alone to pine and sigh

My daddy is a handsome devil
He’s got a chain five miles long
On every link, a heart does dangle
Of another maid he’s loved and wronged, ohhh

Go court another tender maiden
In hopes that she might be your wife
For I’ve been warned so I’ve decided
To sleep alone all of my life
