Hey, Guys!

Was wondering if anyone knew of a website that would have the chords to this (folk) song: "Black Is The Color of My True Love's Hair." I tried TabCrawler.com, but didn't have any luck. It's not a complex song at all, but I'd love to have the chords. I'm trying to surprise my girlfriend with it. "Awwww..." yeah, yeah...

Thanks in advance!

-T.

This is the version I know done by The Easy Club. A Scottish folk/jazz-like ensemble with members from Jock Tamson's Bairns.


Am F G Am
Black is the colour of my true love's hair.
F G E7
Her lips are like some roses fair
F G E7
She had the sweetest smile and the gentlest hands
F G Am
And I love the ground whereon she stands.

I love my love and well she knows
I love the ground whereon she goes
I wish the day it soon would come
When she and I could be as one

I go to the Clyde and I mourn and weep
For satisfied I ne'er can be
I write her a letter just a few short lines
And suffer death a thousand times

Black is the colour of my true love's hair.
Her lips are like some roses fair
She had the sweetest smile and the gentlest hands
And I love the ground whereon she stands.

Michael
