Dolly Parton Silver Dagger Lyrics

Last updated: 03/03/2005 11:00:00 AM

Don't sing love songs you'll wake my mother she's sleeping here right by my side
In her right hand is a silver dagger she says that I can't be your bride

All men are false so says my mother they tell you wicked loving lies
The very next evening they'll court aome other leave you alone to pine and sigh

My daddy is a handsome devil he's got a chain five miles long
From every link a heart does dangle of another maid he's loved and wronged
[ dobro - fiddle ]
Go court another tender maiden and hope that she might be your wife
For I've been warned so I've decided I'll sleep alone all of my life
