Alison Krauss & Union Station.
The Captain's Daughter.
Album: Johnny Cash, The Music, Forever Words.
Capo 1. 

Intro: C Am C F C Am F C Dm7 C
C                     Am
I'm a poor boy as you know,
      C
But I love the Captain's daughter so,
C                         Dm7
If I begged her would she go?
   D7                F   C   Dm7     F   C
Or would she tell me no, no, no, no, no, no?

C                 Am
Daddy is a sailor man,
     C                   F
Your fresh from the farm land,
   C                    Am
He said when you ask my hand,
    D7             F   C   Dm7     F   C
For me to tell you no, no, no, no, no, no.


Break: Am  C  F  C  Am7  F  C  Dm7  C 

C                         Am
Your daddy's gone away to sea,
C                       F   C
You're as lovely as can be,
                      Am
Come and go away with me,
    D7                F   C   Dm7     F   C
Oh, don't you tell me no, no, no, no, no, no.


Chorus:

Am                      G
My daddy owns a clipper ship,
G
He brings me pearls on every trip,
F
Pink champagne for me to sip,
    D7
And you're the poorest boy, 
  F     C     Dm7   F     C
I know, know, know, know, know.


Break: G  Am  C  F  C  Am  F  C  Dm7  C

C                          Am
I've got no pearls to give you,
     C                             F
I've got two arms and heart that's true,
C                              Am7
We could start with a dream or two,
   D7                   F   C   Dm7  G  C
Oh won't you say you'll go, go?

C                               Am
The poor boy came from the farm land,
    C                           Fmaj7
She was the daughter of a sailor man,
    C                               Am
The Captain says 'When he begs your hand',
   D7               F   C   Dm7     F   C
You better tell him no, no, no, no, no, no.


Chorus:
          Am
She said 'Papa don't you worry please',
    G
The poor boy begs me upon his knees,
    F                        C
I'd never leave this life of ease,
D7                    D
With the poor boy goes.

    C                                 Am
The captain kissed her and he went to sea,
    C                           F
The poor boy said 'Go away with me',
       C                        Am
You're lonely and you shouldn't be,
    D7                F   C   Dm7     F   C
Oh, don't you tell me no, no, no, no, no, no.

Chorus:

Am                      G
My daddy owns a clipper ship,
G
He brings me pearls on every trip,
F
Pink champagne for me to sip,
    D7
And you're the poorest boy, 
  F     C     Dm7   F     C
I know, know, know, know, know.

C                        Am
Your daddy's given you a home,
           C                     F
But you've got nobody when he is gone,
F
I'll go and leave you all alone,
       D7             Am   F   C
If the answer is still no, no, no.
