Fakenham Fair

Standard Tuning: capo to suit, 3rd is suggested.

VERSE:
D       A      D       G           D          G        A
I never really fell in love till I went up to Fakenham fair
D                  A           D        G      D           A        D
And chanced for to meet with a carnival girl a selling the fortunes there
G         F#         Em                 A      D      G
Try for a lamp or a  Spanish shawl or a golden filigree
D           A        D         G       D         A           D  
But all the time her eyes were saying 'come take a chance on me'


CHORUS:
G        F#         Em       A
So swing around the merry-go-round
D                              G
Give the wheel of fortune a whirl
D          A        D        G
The finest prize at Fakenham fair
D             A         D
Is the pretty carnival girl

VERSE:
Her hair was brown and her eyes were blue and her lips they were soft and red
I’d never seen such a shape as hers and my eyes nearly popped from my head
For I was young and innocent oh but still even I could see
the way she smiled and winked my way said ‘come take a chance on me’

*CHORUS*

VERSE:
My friends they said well she’s not for you oh what will the old people think
But I took my chance and I won that girl just as quick as an eye could wink
And the finest day in all my life whatever may come to pass
Was the day i went up to Fakenham Fair and won me the carnival lass 

*CHORUS*
