Intro: C   Am   Dm   F   C
  C                  Am         Dm              C
I once had a darling sweetheart and I loved her so
C                   Am           Dm                G
Loved her more than I could ever let my poor heart show
    C             Am           Dm             C
She went away and left me, she found somebody else
C               Am                Dm      F    C
Left me here in this old world to cry all to myself

C                 Am   Dm                C
Stone must be the wall built around your heart
C                Am              Dm             G
I still love you darling but the time has come to part
C               Am               Dm                  C
No more sorrow, no more pain can enter this heart of mine
C                  Am                     Dm   F    C
Life isn't long in this old world, let the past stay behind

C   Am   Dm   F   C

C                   Am                   Dm            C
I know somewhere in this old world there is a girl for me
C                    Am                   Dm            G
A girl who longs for wealth and fame, for love and sympathy
C                      Am     Dm               C
I don't know where she lives, maybe across the sea
C                    Am       Dm        F        C
But the walls of Jerico can't keep her away from me

C                 Am   Dm                C
Stone must be the wall built around your heart
C                Am              Dm             G
I still love you darling but the time has come to part
C               Am               Dm                  C
No more sorrow, no more pain can enter this heart of mine
C                  Am                     Dm   F    C
Life isn't long in this old world, let the past stay behind

C  Am   Dm   F   C

C                  Am                     Dm   F    C
Life isn't long in this old world, let the past stay behind
