About this tab version
Aubrie Haynie accompanies Ashley Monroe on violin, but a slow, respectful guitar picker capo'ed on the 4th fret can make this song sound pretty good. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Pretty Saro - Ashley Monroe & Aubrey Haynie
Capo 4

       A2                 E
When I first come to this country
   D                  A2
in Eighteen and Forty-nine
      A2          E
I saw many fair lovers
but I never saw mine
I viewed it all around me
    D            A2
saw I was quite alone
and me a poor stranger
      D             A2
and a long way from home

         A2                       E        
Well, my true love she won’t have me
         D           A2
and it’s this I understand
        A2                 E
For she wants some free holder
and I have no land
  A2           E
I couldn’t maintain her
   D          A2
on silver and gold
but all of the other fine things
        D                  A2
that my love’s house could hold

         A              E
Fare thee well to ol’ mother
          D                 A2
fare thee well to my father too
     A2              E
I am going for to ramble
this wide world all through
And when I get weary
     D            A2
I’ll sit down and cry
    E           A2
and think of my Saro
       D        A2
pretty Saro, my bride

        A2                    E
Well, I wished I was a turtle dove
    D               A2
Had wings and could fly
     A2                   E
Far away to my lover’s lodgings
   A2                 E
Tonight I’d drawn the line
    E            A2        E
And there in her lilywhite arms
    D             A2
I’d lay there all night
    E                         A2
and watch through them little wind’ers
        D          A2
for the dawning of day
