Donna Donna
by Donovan
Intro:
Am  E  Am  E  Am


Am   E     Am         E     Am           Dm          Am   E   Am    
On a wagon bound for market    there's a calf with a mournful eye
Am    E        Am        E       Am         Dm      Am      E   Am
High above him there's a swallow    winging swiftly through the sky

C                   Am        G                         Am     
  All the winds are laughing, they laugh with all their might
C                    Am                             E       Am
  Love and laugh the whole day through and half the summers night


E                 Am     Dm                Am
Donna Donna Donna Donna, Donna Donna Donna Don
E                 Am                 E     Am  E  Am  E
Donna Donna Donna Donna, Donna Donna Donna Don


Stop complaining said the farmer, 
Who told you a calf to be?
Why can't you have wings to fly with, 
Like the swallow, so proud and free?

How the winds are laughing, 
They laugh with all their might.
Love and laugh the whole day through
And, half the summer's night.

Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, 
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don, 
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, 
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
Oh, why can't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow you've learned to fly

How the winds are laughing, 
They laugh with all their might.
Love and laugh the whole day through
And, half the summer's night.

Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, 
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don, 
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, 
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.
