The Silver Dagger
Old Crow Medicine Show

Key of D 
No capo 

All other verses are the same

(D) Oh Katie (G) dear go ask your (D) mother 
If you can be a (G) bride of (A) mine 
If she says (G) yes come back and (D) tell me 
If she says n(A)o we'll run away (D) 

Oh Willie dear there's no use in asking 
For she's in her room a taking rest 
And by her side lies a silver dagger 
To slay the one that I love best 

Oh Katie dear go ask your papa 
If you could be a bride of mine 
If he says yes come back and tell me 
If he says no we'll run away 

Oh Willie dear there's no use in asking 
For he's in his room a taking rest 
And by his side lies a silver dagger 
To slay the one that I love best 

Then he picked up that silver dagger 
And he stove it through her troubled heart 
Saying goodbye Katie goodbye darlin 
I'll die for the one that I love best 

Then she picked up that bloody dagger 
And she stove it through her lily white breast 
Saying goodbye mama goodbye papa 
I'll die for the one that I love best

I really think that there is a capo on the second fret. Listen to the chords opening the song and their hammer-ons.
