Love Henry
Traditional, arranged by Bob Dylan
Released on World Gone Wrong (1993)
Tabbed by Eyolf ěstrem

Capo 6th fret (original key F# major)


C      x32010

These are sparkled throughout the long C parts.

Riff for the last line of each verse:

  C           C   G   F   C/e G/d C
  |   .   .   .   |   .   .   .   | .
          I'll apply them all to thee

The final G/d could also be a G7/f: xx300x, as e.g. in the last verse.


     C                   F           C
"Get down, get down Love Henry," she cried
"And stay all night with me
  C                         F        C
I have gold chains, and the finest I have
C      G   F    C/e G/d C
I'll apply them all to thee."

"I can't get down and I shan't get down
Or stay all night with thee
Some pretty little girl in Cornersville
I love far better than thee."

He layed his head on a pillow of down
Kisses she gave him three
With a penny knife that she held in her hand
She murdered mortal he.

"Get well, get well Love Henry," she cried
"Get well, get well," said she
"Oh don't you see my own heart's blood
Come flowin' down so free ?"

She took him by his long yellow hair
And also by his feet
She plunged him into well water, where
It runs both cold and deep.

"Lie there, lie there, Love Henry," she cried
"'Til the flesh rots off your bones
Some pretty little girl in Cornersville
Will mourn for your return."

"Hush up, hush up, my parrot," she cried
"Don't tell no news on me
Or these costly beads around my neck
I'll apply them all to thee."

"Fly down, fly down pretty bird," she cried
"And light on my right knee
The doors to your cage shall be decked with gold
And hung on a willow tree."

"I won't fly down, I can't fly down
And light on your right knee
A girl who would murder her own true love
Would kill a little bird like me."
