Basic Chords Josh Ritter - Silver Blade Live

[Intro]
Am  Am  Am  Am

[Verse 1]
Am
Oh, I have a silver blade,
  G
The edges sharp, the handle bone.
  Dm
A pretty thing of silver made,
F
Now it's the only thing I own.
Am
Once I knew a lordling fine.
  G
I heard him whistle as he rode.
  Dm
And I was bold to call him mine.
  F
The shoes upon his horse were gold.

Am  G  Dm  F

[Verse 2]
Am
One look in my eyes and he,
G
Bid me climb onto his horse.
  Dm
And asked if I'd his lady be,
  F
And go away for ever more?
  Am
He spoke of love songs at each kiss,
  G
And I who was a young girl then,
  Dm
Was promissed every young girls bliss,
F
Got up and rode away with him.
  Am
He led me through his castle tall,
    G
With promises and jewels until,
  Dm
He led me through his castle hall,
    F
And took my clothes and worked his will.
    Am
And when he had and I lay there,
G
From my head with a silver blade,
  Dm
He cut a lock of my cold black hair,
    F
And bid me dress and go my way.

[Break]
Am  G  Dm  F
Am  G  Dm  F

[Verse 3]
    Am
But I marked well the silver blade,
    G
And where he laid it when he did,
    Dm
And when his back was turned away,
  F
I burried it beneath his ribs.
  Am
I used the dagger as a spade,
G
Where the thorns and lilacs grow.
  Dm
I cut the ground into a grave,
F
In a place even God don't know.
  Am
And every evening I returned,
G
To the place for him I chose,
Dm
Until his skin had turned to worms,
F
Wild dogs scattered his bones.
    Am
And all I have of what I was,
G
Is the memory of a maid,
Dm
Who mistook a thief for love,
F
But who gained a silver blade.

Am  G  Dm  F

[Outro]
    Am  G  Dm  F
Silver blade.

Am  G  Dm  F
Am  G  Dm  F
