Silver Dagger (銀匕首) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Don't sing love songs


You'll wake my mother


She's sleeping here right by my side


And in her right hand a silver dagger


She says that I can't be your bride


All men are false says my mother


They'll tell you wicked lovin' lies


The very next evening


They'll court another

Leave you alone to pine and sigh


My daddy is a handsome devil


He's got a chain five miles long


And on every link a heart does dangle


Of another maid he's loved and wronged


Go court another tender maiden


And hope that she will be your wife


For I've been warned and I've decided


To sleep alone all of my life
