General Rules On Chord ChartsE B When first unto this country A E A stranger I came A B E I courted a fair maid A E And Nancy was her name. I courted her for love Her love I didn't obtain Do you think I've any reason Or right to complain. I rode to see my Nancy I rode both night and day I stoled a fine stallion From Colonel Charles Grey. I rode to see my Nancy I rode both day and night I courted fairest Nancy My own heart's true delight. The sheriff's men they followed And overtaken me They carted me away To the penitentiary. They opened up the door And then they threw me in They shaved off my hair And they cleared off my chin. They beat me and they banged me, And they fed me on dry beans 'Til I wished to my own soul I'd never been a thief. With my hands stuck in my pockets And my cap set on so bold My coat of many colors Like Joseph's of old. Repeat first verse.
