Scarborough Fair Traditional Folk Song

Scarborough Fair is a traditional English folk song (Roud 12). I recently recorded it and distributed the song using Distrokid.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair: Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there. She once was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt: Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
Without no seams nor needle work, Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to find me an acre of land: Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
Between the salt water and the sea strand, Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather: Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
And gather it all in a bunch of heather, Then she’ll be a true love of mine.
