Am           C       G                F                 Am
When first I came to Louisville, some pleasure there to find,
                    G             Am
A damsel there from Lexington was pleasing to my mind,
    F                     G          Am   
Her rosy cheeks, her ruby lips, like arrows pierced my breast,
                      G          F           Am
The name she bore was Flora, the Lily of the West.
                           G          F           Am
(And the name she bore was Flora, the Lily of the West)

                 G           F               Am
I courted lovely Flora, some pleasure for to find,
        C                   G                 F           Am
But she turned unto another man, which sore distressed my mind,
                    F    G   Am
She robbed me of my liberty, deprived me off my rest,
                   G          F           Am
Then go, my lovely Flora, the Lily of the West.
                    G          F           Am
(Then go, my lovely Flora, the Lily of the West)

            C            G        F           Am
Way down in yonder shady grove, a man of high degree,
                         G                      F          Am
Conversing with my Flora there, which seemed so strange to me,
        F                       G                   Am
And the answer that she gave to him, it sore did me oppress,
                  G          F           Am
I was betrayed by Flora, the Lily of the West.
                   G          F           Am
(I was betrayed by Flora, the Lily of the West)

             C     G      F            Am
I stepped up to my rival, dagger in my hand,
                    G           F                Am
I seized him by the collar, and boldly made him stand,
      F             G       Am
Being mad by desperation, I pierced him through the breast,
                    G          F           Am 
All this for lovely Flora, the Lily of the West.
                     G          F           Am
(All this for lovely Flora, the Lily of the West)

         C        G               F       Am
I had to stand my trial, I had to make my plea,
                              G             F            Am
They placed me in the witness box, and then commenced on me,
                           G              F        Am
Although she swore my life away, deprived me of my rest,
                          G          F           Am
Still I love my faithless Flora, the Lily of the West.
                           G          F           Am
(Still I love my faithless Flora, the Lily of the West)
