Be nobody's darling but mine lyrics and chords
To play along with the Foster And Allen version of the song use the second set of chords I have given as that's the way Foster And Allen play the song. It was also recorded by Isla Grant With Mick Flavin, Merle Haggard sang it in an episode of the television programme The Waltons. In fact most of the older American country singers sang this song.
[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
Be nobody's darlin' but mine.
You're as sweet as the flowers of springtime
You're as pure as the dew from the rose
I had rather be somebody's darlin'
Than a poor girl that nobody knows.
My Mother is dead and in heaven
My Daddy has gone down below
Sister has gone to meet Mother
An where I'll go, nobody knows.
Goodbye, goodbye little darlin'
I'm leaving this cold world behind
[E]Be[G]Nobody's darlin' but [C]mine, love
Be [D]hon[A]est, be [D]faithful, be [G]kind,[D]
[G]Promise me that you will [C]never
Be [D]nobody's dar[G]lin' but mine.[E]
You're as [G]sweet as the flowers of [C]springtime
[C]Fair [D]as the rose that [G]twine
Your [G]sure to be somebody's [C]darling
Be no[D]body's darling buy [G]mine
[Eb] Come [Ab]sit by my side, little [C#] darlin'
Come [Eb] lay your cool hand on my [Ab] brow[Eb]
I'm [Ab]taking a long weary [C#]journey
So [Eb]give your last kiss to me [Ab]now
