Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
VERSE 1:

G                        C

A bear there was, a bear a bear

G                         D

All black and brown and covered in hair

G                         C

Three boys, a goat, and a dancing bear

Am                       D

They danced and spun up to the fair

G                          C

Oh! Sweet she was, and pure and fair

G                          D

The maid with honey up in her hair

G                           C

He smelled her all on the summer air

Am                        C        D

The maid with honey up in her hair

CHORUS:

Em              C          Em        C

From there, to here, from here to there

        G            D           C

All black and brown and covered in hair

Em          C            Em        C

Smelt that girl on the summer air

G           D             G

The bear, the bear, and the maiden fair

VERSE 2 (same chords as first half of Verse 1):

Oh I'm a maid and I'm pure and fair
I'll never dance with a hairy bear
I called the knight, but you're a bear
All black and brown and covered in hair

CHORUS (repeat chords):

From there to here, from here to there
All black and brown and covered in hair
Smelt that girl on the summer air
The bear, the bear, and the maiden fair

And that just about sums it up. This is my first tab, so the formatting may be a little
off, but the chords should be just about spot-on. Noticed there weren't any tabs for
this up yet, so decided to see if I could just piece it together by ear. Let me know if 
there are any amendments to be made, otherwise, enjoy :)
