May I Sleep In Your Barn Tonight Mister Chords And Lyrics, this is an old American folk song sang to the tune of Red River Valley, recorded by Mac Wiseman, and  by Charlie Poole, a traditional song, also known as ''The Tramp Song''

[D]One night it was dark and it was storming when along came a tramp in the[A] rain
He was[D] making his way to some[G] station to[A] catch a long distance[D] train


[D]May I sleep in you'r barn tonight mister,
It's cold lying out on the [A]ground
And the [D]cold north wind is [G]whistling and [A]I have no place to lie [D]down


[D]Now I have no tobacco nor matches and I'm sure I can cause you no [A]harm
I will [D]tell you my story kind [G]Mister for it [A]runs through my heart like a[D] storm


It [D]was three years ago just last summer I shall never forget that sad [A]day
When a [D]stranger came out from the [G]city and [A]said that he wanted to [D]stay


Now the stranger was fair tall and handsome and he looked like a man who had wealth
And he wanted to stay in the country said he wanted to stop for his health


One night as I came from my workshop I was whistling and singing with joy
I expected a kind hearty welcome from my sweet loving wife and my boy
But what did I find but a letter it was placed in my room on the stand


And the moment my eyes fell upon it I picked it right up in my hand

Now this note said my wife and the stranger had left and had taken my son
Oh I wonder if God up in heaven only knows what this stranger has done


May I sleep in your barn Mister it is cold lying out on the ground
And the cold north wind is a whistling and I have no place to lie
