## NOTE: This song is mostly just a G chord all the way through ## 


nd Fret 



Intro: G 

Have you heard many a story 
                           D 
Told by old and young with joy 
 G 
About the faithful deed of daring 
That was done by the Laughlin boy 
That was done by the Laughlin boy 



Yeah, listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 
Listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 



The Laughlin boy was a boy of honour 
                      D 
And he loved Virginia well 
G 
But he would not fire a rifle 
So he sat in an cold jail cell 
So he sat in an cold jail cell 



Well, he was pierced and he was beaten 
                        D 
Forty strips he gladly bore 
G 
But he would not serve the devil 
In that awful Civil War 
In that awful Civil War 



Yeah, listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 
Listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 



Now, twelve grey soldiers stood before him 
                            D 
And they aimed their rifles true 
G 
He prayed Lord, "Oh please forgive them 
For they know not what they do 
For they know not what they do" 



Well, those young soldiers would not fire 
                          D 
They defied the General's plan 
G 
So the army changed his sentence 
Who could murder such a man?  
Who could murder such a man? 



Listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 
Listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 



They hauled him far away to Richmond 
                           D 
Far away from his kids and wife 
G 
There, pneumonia racked his body 
That good man soon lost his life 
That good man soon lost his life 



Now his wife is sadly weeping 
                      D 
Seven children wonder why 
G 
Lord, it seems that truth and honour 
Sure can come at an awful price 
Sure can come at an awful price 



Yeah, listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 
Listen to me, children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 



Oh, have you heard many a story 
                           D 
Told by old and young with joy 
 G 
About the fateful deed of daring 
That was done by the Laughlin boy 
That was done by the Laughlin boy 



Yeah, listen to me children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 
Listen to me, children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 
Listen to me, children, well I wouldn't tell a lie 
                                         D         G 
Won't you listen to me, children, well I would not lie 



Listen to me, children (listen to me, children) 
Listen to me, children (listen to me, children) 
Listen to me, children (listen to me, children) 
Oh, listen to me, children
