Poor Ellen Smith

Traditional, arr. by Crooked Still

Poor Ellen Smith, now where was she found?
Shot through the heart, lying cold in the ground
many hearts has she broken many lives she has ended,
now all that has ended and you're dead in the snow

/ G C G - G D G - / / G - - - - - D G / G - C G G - D G /

Poor Ellen, poor Ellen, you've wasted your life
You could have made some man a very good wife
Your friends tried to warn you, of your ending you was told
Now all that has ended and you're dead in the snow

So early this morning, poor Ellen was found
Shot through the heart, lying cold in the ground
The men, they will mourn you, their wives will be glad
Such is the ending of a girl that is bad

Perhaps you're in heaven, God only knows
The bible, it tells us you've gone down the road
Poor Ellen Smith, now where was she found?
Shot through the heart, lying cold in the ground
