Six Ribbons by Jon English

INTRO:  [Em] [A6] … [Em] [A6]

[Em] If I were a [D] minstrel, I'd [CMaj7] sing you six [Bm] love songs
To [Em] tell the whole [D] world of the [Em] love that [D] we [Em] share
If I were a [D] merchant, I'd [CMaj7] bring you six [Bm] diamonds
With [Em] six blood red [D] roses, for [Em] my love [D] to [Em] wear
But I am a [D] simple man, a [CMaj7] poor common [Bm] farmer
So [Em] take these six [D] ribbons, to [Em] tie back [D] your [Em] hair

Yellow and [D] brown, [G] blue as the [D] sky
[Em] Red as my [D] blood, green as your [Em] eyes

If I was a [D] nobleman, I'd [CMaj7] bring you six [Bm] carriages
With [Em] six snow white [D] horses to [Em] take [D] you [Em] anywhere
If I were the [D] Emperor I’d [CMaj7] build you six [Bm] palaces
With [Em] six hundred [D] servants for [Em] comfort [D] and [Em] fare
But I am a [D] simple man, a [CMaj7] poor common [Bm] farmer 
So [Em] take my six [D] ribbons to [Em] tie back [D] your [Em] hair

[Instrumental] Key of G

If [Em] I were a [D] minstrel, I'd [CMaj7] sing you six [Bm] love songs
To [Em] tell the whole [D] world of the [Em] love that [D] we [Em] share
So be not [D] afraid my love, you’re [CMaj7] never alone [Bm] love
While [Em] you wear my [D] ribbons, [Em] tie’in back [D] your [Em] hair
Once I was a [D] simple man, a [CMaj7] poor common [Bm] farmer
I [Em] gave you six [D] ribbons, to [Em] tie back [D] your [Em] hair

[G] Toor-A-lee, toor-A-lai all I can [CMaj7] share
Is [G] only six [D] ribbons [Em] tie’in back [D] your [Em] hair

[FEMALE VOICE]        [G] Toor-A-lee, toor-A-lie, [Em] all I [D] can [G] share

I gave you six [D] ribbons to [Em] tie back [D] your [Em] hair
