WOODEN HEART

C – F – C – F – C – F - C

                     C             G                           C
1.    Can't you see I love you, please don't break my heart in two,
                                                    G                G7          C
    that's not hard to do, 'cause I don't have a wooden heart.
                                     G                C
    And if you say goodbye, then I know that I would cry,
                                                 G                  G7         C
    maybe I would die, 'cause I don't have a wooden heart.
                         G                      C
    There's no strings upon this love of mine,
                F                               C - G
    it was always you from the start.
                     C                     G                   C
    Treat me nice, treat me good, treat me like you really should,
                                                               G                  G7       C-F-C
    'cause I'm not made of wood, and I don't have a wooden heart.

                  C                   G               C
2.    Muss i denn, muss i denn zum Staedtele hinaus,
                                        G                G7                C
    Staedtele hinaus, und du, mein Schatz, bleibst hier?
                                       G               C
    Muss i denn, muss i denn zum Staedtele hinaus,
                                        G                G7                C
    Staedtele hinaus, und du, mein Schatz, bleibst hier?
                         G                      C
    There's no strings upon this love of mine,
               F                               C - G
    it was always you from the start.
                C                G                C
    Sei mir gut, sei mir gut, sei mir wie du wirklich sollst,
                                                      G                G7          C
    wie du wirklich sollst, 'cause I don't have a wooden heart.

    + F-C-F-C-F-C-G-C

Presumably the absence of numerous F chords is down to HTML problems ? There is also a Bflat chord which should be played at the end of the line

it was always you from the start. (G-Bflat_G)

At least that's how Elvis played it ...

Joe Dowell is the one I remember--anyway, before you go plugging away at this,el, find out what key your friend's harmonica is in--then get the chords in that key.

"Wenn i komm" is part of "Muss i' denn." Click here.
Lyrics copy-pasted from the link cited above.
-Joe Offer-

Muß i' denn zum Städtele hinaus

- Aus dem Remstal, zuerst bei Friedrich Silcher, 1827
2. & 3. Strophe Heinrich Wagner

1. Muß i' denn, muß i' denn
Zum Städtele hinaus,
Städtele hinaus
Und du mein Schatz bleibst hier
Wenn i' komm', wenn i' komm',
Wenn i' wiederum, wiederum komm',
Kehr i' ei' mei' Schatz bei dir
|: Kann i' glei' net allweil bei dir sei'
   Han' i' doch mei' Freud' an dir
   Wenn i' komm', wenn i' komm',
   Wenn i' wiederum, wiederum komm',
   Kehr' i' ei' mei' Schatz bei dir. :|

2. Wenn du weinst, wenn du weinst,
Daß i' wandere muß,
Wandere muß,
Wie wenn d'Lieb jetzt wär vorbei
Sind au' drauß, sind au' drauß,
Der Mädele viel, Mädele viel
Lieber Schatz, i' bleib dir treu.
|: Denk du nett wenn i' a and're seh
   No sei mei Lieb' vorbei
   Sind au' drauß, sind au' drauß,
   Der Mädele viel, Mädele viel
   Lieber Schatz, i' bleib dir treu. :|

3. Übers Jahr, übers Jahr,
Wenn mer Träubele schneidt,
Träubele schneidt,
Stell i' hier mi' wiedrum ei'
Bin i' dann, bin i' dann,
Dei' Schätzele no', Schätzele no'
So soll die Hochzeit sei.
|: Übers Jahr do ischt mei' Zeit vorbei
   Do g'hör i' mei und dei
   Bin i' dann, bin i' dann,
   Dei' Schätzele no', Schätzele no'
   So soll die Hochzeit sei. :|

Tr. & Phonetic Ver. Frank 1998

1. Got to go, got to go,
Got to leave this town,
Leave this town
And you, my dear, stay here.
When I'm back, when I'm back
When I'm back again, back again,
On your doorstep I'll appear.
|: Tho' I can't be with you all the time
   My thoughts are with you, my dear
   When I'm back, when I'm back
   When I'm back again, back again,
   On your doorstep I'll appear. :|

2. Don't you cry, don't you cry,
'cause I've got to go,
Got to go,
As if our love was now gone.
Tho' out there, tho' out there
Are so many girls, many girls,
I'll stay true to you alone.
|: Don't think when I see another girl
   My love for you, it will be gone.
   Tho' out there, tho' out there
   Are so many girls, many girls,
   I'll stay true to you alone. :|

3. In a year, in a year,
With grapes ripe on the vine,
Ripe on the vine,
Then, again it's here I'll be.
If by then, if by then,
I am still your beau, still your beau
We will wed, my bride you'll be.
|: In a year my time, it will be done
   And then it is your's I will be.
   If by then, if by then,
   I am still your beau, still your beau,
   We will wed, my bride you'll be. :|

Latin
Cum est fas me discedere,
Mea lux, requires me;
Rediens, iens iterum,
Mea lux, revisam te.
Etsi adsum non perpetuo,
Es mi semper laetitiae.
Rediens, iens iterum,
Mea lux, revisam te.

Quidnam fles, quod demigro,
Quasi amor exstinctus sit?
Multae sint foris virgines,
Mes fides non perit.
Etsi aliae occurrunt mi,
Amor me non deficit.
Multae sint foris virgines,
Mes fides non perit.

Anno post in vin demia
Revertar huc ad te;
Tum si me ames pariter,
Celebrentur nuptiae!
Anno post cum tempus abiit,
Tibi dabo denuo me;
Tum si me ames pariter,
Celebrentur nuptiae!
