Give Me Your Love And I’ll Give You Mine


Give me your love and I’ll give you mine
capo 1st  The Carter Family

      G                                C                     G
1. Just at the close of a bright summer day,
    just as the twilight had faded away.
       G                                       C           G
    Soft on the breeze like the coo of a dove,
                                              D               G
    someone was singing an old song of love.


  D                                     G
Tell me you love me and say you'll be true,
   G                                             D
I love nobody in this world but you.
            G                              C                G
Your heart and my heart in love will entwine,
                                          D             G
give me your love and I'll give you mine.


verse 1 repeat chorus +16 bar inst

      G                                          C                G
2. Come along with me to the quiet shady nook,
    where flowers bloom at the side of the brook.
      G                                 C                G
    Nature is sleeping, the birds are at rest,
                                                    D            G
    I'll place a wild rose on your beautiful breast.

 +  CHORUS +instrumental = verse 2

            D                                          G
3. I've something to ask you while you're by my side,
    a question of love, of groom and of bride.
           G                                  C             G
    And if you refuse me, my heart it will pine,
                                              D            G
    give me your love and I'll give you mine.

        + CHORUS
