Foster And Allen – A Bunch Of Thyme chords

I think this is originally an English traditional song, but was made famous
in the 70s by Foster and Allen, a duo from Ireland. The chords work in
simple strumming patterns or just play them with a simple picking method.

G D GCome all ye maidens young and fair
G Bm D7And you that are blooming in your prime
G G7 C D7Always beware and keep your garden fair
G D7 GLet no man steal away your thyme
G D GFor thyme it is a precious thing
G Bm D7And thyme brings all things to my mind
G G7 C D7Thyme with all its flavours*, along with all its joys
G D7 GThyme, brings all things to my mind
G D GOnce I had a bunch of thyme
G Bm D7I thought it never would decay
G G7 C D7Then came a lusty sailor, who chanced to pass my way
G D7 GAnd stole my bunch of thyme away
G D GThe sailor gave to me a rose
G Bm D7A rose that never would decay
G G7 C D7He gave it to me to keep me reminded
G D7 GOf when he stole my thyme away
*sometimes i have heard versions where they say "labours" instead of "flavours", so use either on preference :) http://www.allcelticmusic.com/artists/Foster%20and%20Allen.html
