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. 3|2|0|0|0|3 G x|x|0|2|3|2 D x|x|0|2|1|2 D7 x|2|4|4|3|2 Bm 3|2|0|0|0|1 G7 x|3|2|0|1|0 CG D GCome all ye maidens young and fairG Bm D7And you that are blooming in your primeG G7 C D7Always beware and keep your garden fairG D7 GLet no man steal away your thymeG D GFor thyme it is a precious thingG Bm D7And thyme brings all things to my mindG G7 C D7Thyme with all its flavours*, along with all its joysG D7 GThyme, brings all things to my mindG D GOnce I had a bunch of thymeG Bm D7I thought it never would decayG G7 C D7Then came a lusty sailor, who chanced to pass my wayG D7 GAnd stole my bunch of thyme awayG D GThe sailor gave to me a roseG Bm D7A rose that never would decayG G7 C D7He gave it to me to keep me remindedG 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
