Donna Donna

by: Peter Paul & Mary

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


((REFRAIN:))
[G                   C]
How the winds were laughing
[ G                           C]
They laughed with all their might
[ G                       C]
Laughed and laughed the whole
[  E7    Am]
  day through
[    E                  Am]
And half the summer's night
[ E                    Am]
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna
[ G                    C]
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna
[ E                    Am]
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna
[ E                    Am]
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna


(1st verse chords)
Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
But whoever treasures freedom
Like a swallow has learned to fly.
(Repeat REFRAIN)

(1st verse chords)
Stop complaining, said the farmer
Who told you a calf to be
Why don't you have wings to fly with
Like a swallow so proud and free
(Repeat REFRAIN)
