I have it by Katherine McKinnon, a fine singer from Nova Scotia, it should be in the DT. If not I will get them and post later.

If you were to type fair and tender ladies into the "Digitrad and Forum Search" box on the main Forum page, you would get a number of references to past discussions here, and to a file in the Digital Tradition database.  These would probably be the most useful:

Come all you fair and tender ladies  (6 verses(
Love Is Teasin'  (A bit shorter).

It's one of those songs which is largely made up of "floating" verses that attach themselves to lots of different songs, so a complete version probably doesn't exist, but you've got a start, now.  You might like to have a look at the entry at the  Traditional Ballad Index:

Fair and Tender Ladies,  which will also give you some useful clues, though you should pay no attention to the "earliest date" bit!

I also have this verse from a little known recording from Peggy Smith.

Do you remember our courtin' days When your head lay upon my breast? You could have made me believe by the fallin' of your arm That the sun rose in the west.

Couldn't find it in Digital Traditions as "Fair and Tender Ladies," but found it as, "The Little Sparrow."

I found it here. It was listed as Fair and Tender Ladies. (I searched for the word "tender.") It says it was recorded by Edna and Jean Ritchie. ;-)

This is not the exact tune I know, but still quite lovely.
