Scarborough Fair (Canticle) - Simon & Garfunkel


[Intro]
Am7     Amadd9   G           Am7    Amadd9
Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
C       Am        C D      Am7   Amadd9   Am7   Amadd9
Parley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
  Am     C         G   Am    G
Remember me to one who lives there.
Am       G                  Am7   Amadd9   Am7   Amadd9
She once was a true love of mine.


[Verse]
Am7        Amadd9     G       Am7
Tell her to make me a cambric shirt:
Am7   Amadd9 G         Am7         Amadd9      C      Am  C  D
     (On the side of a hill in the deep forest green.)
C        Am        C D      Am7   Am7  Amadd9  Am7  Amadd9
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
      Am7        Am         Am7          Amadd9  Am  C
     (Tracing of sparrow on snow-crested brown.)

    Am     C         G   Am  G
Without no seems nor nee-dle work,
      C   G    Am  G                           Am       G
     (Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain)
Am          G                 Am7
Then she'll be a true love of mine.
      Am7      Amadd9       Am7     Amadd9
     (Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.)


[Verse]
Am7        Amadd9      G       Am7   Amadd9
Tell her to find me an acre of land:
Am7   Amadd9 G         Am7    Amadd9        C
     (On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves.)
C        Am        C D      Am7   Amadd9   Am7   Amadd9
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
      Am7        Amadd9     Am7     Amadd9
     (Washes the grave with silvery tears.)
   Am            C         G   Am  G
Between the salt water and the sea strand,
     C  G  Am   G                     Am   G
     (A soldier cleans and polishes a gun.)
Am          G                 Am7  Amadd9  Am7  Amadd9
Then she'll be a true love of mine.
      Am7       Amadd9      Am7     Amadd9
     (Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.)


[Verse]
Am7         Amadd9         G         Am7
Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather:
Am7  Amadd9  G           Am7        Amadd9    C
            (War bellows blazing in scarlet battalions.)
C        Am        C D      Am7   Amadd9  Am7  Amadd9
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
      Am7      Amadd9      Am7         Amadd9
     (Generals order their soldiers to kill.)
    Am        C        G     Am G
And gather it all in a bunch of heather,
      C            G    Am G                         Am      G
     (And to fight for  a  cause they've long ago forgotten.)
Am          G                 Am7   Am7   Cmaj7   Am
Then she'll be a true love of mine. 


[Outro]
Am7     Amadd9   G           Am7    Amadd9
Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
C       Am        C D      Am7   Amadd9   Am7   Amadd9
Parley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
  Am     C         G   Am    G
Remember me to one who lives there.
Am       G                  Am7   Amadd9   Am7   Amadd9
She once was a true love of mine.


and that's it!

Good attempt, this is the closest chord version to Simon & Garfunkels version of the song here, the others, so far, should really be under the Traditional list, as they are pretty basic versions, which are fine for beginners.
To match S&G's original recording you need to mention you need a capo at the 7th fret. There are a few passing chords missing, and the actual chord shapes Paul Simon uses are crucial to achieving the right sound, basic shapes only get you partly there. The tabbed versions here on UG are closer.
