Come all ye,

Rolling minstrels,
       A
And to-gether,
G        D
 We will try.

 Don't will stay.

A          D
 Our merry tune,
        A        G      D
That we play for you to-day.

    D
Our fiddler,
        A        D
He just loves to play,
           A
And that's why,
   G        D
He plays so good.

    D
And now he plays,
  A   D
A vio-lin,
     A      G     D
Made out of solid wood.

    D
Pos-sessor of,
    A     D
The magic touch,
    A     G      D
And no ma-gician he.

Will play for you,
     A     D
Some magic notes,
   A         G        D
In-stead, as you will see.

 Sound of beating,
A       D
 On the drum,
A        G
 Song be-hind,
       D
You'll hear.

    D
And to the rhythm,
A       D
 Of gui-tar
   A
We hope you'll,
G        D
 Lend an ear.

          D
Well, the man who plays,
    A         D
The bass does make,
      A
Those low notes,
G         D
 That you hear.

        D
And the high notes,
          A       D
Come from you and me,
    A       G       D
For we will sing so clear.

And together we will try.
