Capo 4 G C/G D G C/G Oh, I was born with the name Geraldine G C/G G C/G With hair coal black as a raven. G C/G D G C/G I travelled my life without a care, G C/G G Ah, but all my love I was saving. Oh, the winds blew high and the trees did sway, Not much from life was I asking. Till I met someone to give all my love, All my love, so long and lasting. Oh, good were the parts we played in our game And a long ways off was tomorrow. But my love was a rambler and restless as the sea, And in the tide came sorrow. Oh, a child of the night is goin' to be born, I can't explain my confusion. Is my love thinking to marry me at all Or of the freedom he thinks he'll be losing? I sit with my friends in the gay crowded room, My friends they're smoking and a-talkin'. But it all seems so empty, my love is not there, So I'll go into the streets a-walkin'. My baby is a-growin' as a-growin' it must, If I were to lose it, it would grieve me. My love is so helpless and I'm wonderin' what to do. Oh, how I yearn to help him. Oh, we could go to the land of your choice Where the false shame won't come knockin' at our door. I've a feeling in my heart and it's crushing all my hopes, I think I'm gonna be hurt some more, Oh, I was born with the name Geraldine, With hair coal black as a raven. I travelled my life without a care, Ah, but all my love I was saving.
