 Carter Family - Sweet fern


    (capo 3rd fret)



(verse 1)
  D
Springtime is coming sweet lonesome bird 
      A             A7       D
Your echo in the woodland I hear 

Down in the meadow so lonesome your singing 
            A            A7        D
While the moonlight is shining so clear 
 

(verse 2)
       G                   D
But I know he's away in a far distant land 
   A                     D
A land that is over the sea 

Go fly to him singing your sweet little song 
     A7          A7          D 
And tell him to come back to me 
 


(chorus)
       D
Sweet fern, sweet fern
    A               A7           D
Oh tell me, is my darling still true 
D
Sweet fern, sweet fern 
     A           A7      D
I'll be just as happy as you 
 


(verse 3)
Oh tell me sweet fern, is he thinking of me 
And the promise he made long ago 
He said he'd return from over the sea 
Oh why do the years roll so slow 

(verse 4)
I know he's away in a far distant land 
A land that is over the sea 
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song 
And tell him to come back to me 
 
 
(chorus)
       D
Sweet fern, sweet fern
    A               A7           D
Oh tell me, is my darling still true 
D
Sweet fern, sweet fern 
     A           A7      D
I'll be just as happy as you


(verse 5)
Upon my finger he placed a small ring 
On the day he was leaving his home 
I promised I'd be his own little girl 
And love him wherever he'd roam 
 

(verse 6)
But I know he's away in a far distant land 
A land that is over the sea 
Go fly to him singing your sweet little song 
And tell him to come back to me 


(chorus)
       D
Sweet fern, sweet fern
    A               A7           D
Oh tell me, is my darling still true 
D
Sweet fern, sweet fern 
     A           A7      D
I'll be just as happy as you
