[D] Come sit by my side, little [G] darlin'
Come [A] lay your cool hand on my [D] brow
Promise me that you will nev-[G] er
Be [A] nobody's darlin' but [D] mine.
Nobody's darlin' but mine, love
Be honest, be faithful, be kind
Promise me that you will never

You're as pure as the dew from the rose

that nobody knows.

Goodbye, goodbye little darlin'
