A        Bm             A                Bm               F#m
My daddy was a handsome gambler he had a chain five miles long
          D     Bm          E                 D    Bm           E
On every link a heart did dangle of another maid he'd loved and wronged
           Bm              A
He'd  tell to you some loving story
              Bm                    F#m
He'd make you think he believed them true
               D    Bm            E                D    Bm         E
But love grows cold as love grows older  and fades away like morning dew

           Bm              A                Bm            F#m
I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun refused to shine
        D    Bm         E                  D      Bm           E
Than to live here in    Missouri with your memory always haunting my mind

            Bm               A                  Bm                 F#m
Come all ye fair and tender ladies take warning how you court your men
               D      Bm              E
They're like a star on a summer's morning
              D   Bm                    E
First they appear then they're gone again


SOLO

            Bm               A                  Bm                 F#m
Come all ye fair and tender ladies take warning how you court your men
               D      Bm              E
They're like a star on a summer's morning
              D   Bm                    E
First they appear then they're gone again


SOLO
