{title:Dona, Dona}
{st:original Yiddish: Aaron Zeitlin & Shalom Secunda}
{st:English: Arthur Kevess & Teddi Schwartz}
[Am]On a w[E]agon [Am]bound for m[E]arket,
[Am]There's a [Dm]calf with a [Am]mournful [E]eye.
[Am]High ab[E]ove him [Am]there's a s[E]wallow
[Am]Winging s[Dm]wiftly t[E]hrough the [Am]sky.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/misc/dona_dona_crd.html ]
     [G]How the winds are l[C]aughing,
     [Am]They l[G]augh with all their m[C]ight,
     [G]Laugh and laugh the w[C]hole d[E]ay th[Am]rough,
     And [E]half the summer's n[Am]ight.

     [E]Dona, dona, dona, d[Am]onna;
     [G]Dona, dona, dona, [C]don.
     [E]Dona, dona, dona, d[Am]onna;
     [E]Dona, dona, dona, [Am]don.

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


Calves are easily bound and slaughtered,
Never knowing the reason why,
But whoever treasures freedom,
Like the swallow has learned to fly.
