About this tab version
This tab is easier to play (no bar chords), the chords are placed with more precision on par with the lyrics, the lyrics are slightly modified to better fit the rhythm, some chords have been modified, and I added picking pattern suggestions. Was this info helpful? Yes No

C                     G
Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more
Am  Am/G           Dm
Men were deceivers ever
            Dm   E7           Am
One foot in sea    and one on shore
       D              G
To one thing constant never
              C                G
Then sigh not so, but let them go
           Am Am/G    Dm
And be you blithe and bonny
           Dm   E7               Am
Converting all    your sounds of woe
       D    G      C
Into a Hey, nonny, nonny

C                     G
Sing no more ditties, sing no more
   Am Am/G           Dm
Or dumps so dull and heavy
             Dm   E7         Am
The fraud of men    was ever so
      D                G
Since summer first was leavy
              C                G
Then sigh not so, but let them go
           Am Am/G    Dm
And be you blithe and bonny
           Dm   E7               Am
Converting all    your sounds of woe
       D    G      C
Into a Hey, nonny, nonny

Suggestions on how to play it :)
I find it good practice for finger picking with easy chords and a few easy fancy bits.
I like to play it with this 8 notes/tempos fingerpick pattern for most of the song :

---------X-------|
-----X-----X---X-|
---X---X-----X---|
-B---------------|

Always with the first note (B) being on the bass string, and the other three as you
please, sometimes there is
 no choice, with a D chord for instance, sometimes more, like with a G chord.

Lines with these chords : Dm E7 Am and these ones : D G C have to be played differently
because of the rythm,
I play it with two 4 notes/tempos picking patterns and a 8 notes/tempos picking pattern :

CHORD 1   CHORD 2   CHORD 3
-------X- -------X- ---------X-------|
-----X--- -----X--- -----X-----X---X-|
---X----- ---X----- ---X---X-----X---|
-B------- -B------- -B---------------|

With each chord played on its own specific strings of course.

I play this part : Am Am/G in a single 8 notes/tempos pick like this :

e|:-----------------|
B|:---------1-------|
G|:-----2-----0---0-|
D|:---2---2-----2---|
A|:-0---------------|
E|:---------3-------|
