Intro:  Em Em D C Bm 
If I were a minstrel, I'd sing you six love songs,
     Em Bm Em Bm Em 
to tell the whole world of the love that we share.
    Em D C Bm  
If I were a merchant, I'd bring you six diamonds,
       Em Bm Em Bm Em 
with six blood red roses, for my love to wear.
     G D Em Bm  
But I am a simple man, a poor common farmer,
     Em Bm Em Bm Em  
so take my six ribbons, to tie back your hair.

  Em D C Bm  
Yellow and brown, blue as the sky.
 Em Bm                  (  Em  )
Red as my blood, green as your eyes.


    Em D C Bm 
If I were a nobleman, I'd bring you six carriages,
       Em Bm Em Bm Em 
with six snow white horses to take you anywhere.
    Em D C Bm  
If I were the Emperor I’d build you six palaces,
       Em Bm Em Bm Em 
with six hundred servants for comfort and fare.
     G D Em Bm  
But I am a simple man, a poor common farmer,
     Em Bm Em Bm Em  
so take my six ribbons to tie back your hair.


 Flute (With apologies for not knowing how to write 3/4, but I hope you get the picture...) =)

So be not afraid my love, you’re never alone love,

Once I was a simple man, a poor common farmer,
    Em Bm Em Bm Em  
I gave you six ribbons, to tie back your hair.


  G Em C 
Toor-a-lee, toor-a-lai. All I can share,
     G D Em Bm Em  
is only six ribbons to tie back your hair.

Toor-a-lee, toor-a-lie. All I can share,
