Performed: Joan Baez, Donovan

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's a swallow
Am Dm Am E7 Am
Winging swiftly through the sky
 
G C * Am
How the winds are laughing
G C * Am
They laugh with all their might
G C * Am
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
E7 Am
And half the summer's night
 
E7 Am
Donna donna donna donna
G C * Am
Donna donna donna don
E7 Am
Donna donna donna donna
E7 Am
Donna donna donna don
 
Am E Am E
Stop complaining, said the farmer
Am Dm Am E
Who told you a calf to be
Am E Am E
Why don't you have wings to fly with
Am Dm Am E7 Am
Like the swallow so proud and free
 
Am E Am E
Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Am Dm Am E
Never knowing the reason why
Am E Am E
But whoever treasures freedom
Am Dm Am E7 Am
Like the swallow has learnt to fly
