Amber Tresses Tied In Blue

[D]Far away in sunny [G]mountains, [D]where the merry sunbeams [A]play,

[D]there I wandered thru the [G]clover, [A]singing to a village [D]maid. 

[A]She was dearer than the [D]dearest, ever loving kind and [A]true,

[D]and she wore beneath her [G]bonnet [A]amber tresses tied in [D]blue. 


Fate decreed that we be parted, ere the leaves of autumn fell,

then two hearts were separated that had loved each other well. 

She was all I had to cherish, every loving kind and true,

now I see in every vision amber tresses tied in blue.


D - G - D - A          D - G - A - D

She was dearer than the dearest, ever loving kind and true,

and she wore beneath her bonnet amber tresses tied in blue.
