JB3 Lyr Req/Add: If I Had a Ribbon Bow (65* d) RE: Lyr Req: If I Had a Ribbon Bow 26 Apr 99


If I had a ribbon bow to tie my hair
If I had a fancy sash, my own true love would think me fair
And he'd go down to Asheville, a-loggin' on the rise
And bring me back with his two hands a very pretty prize

If I had a pair of shoes so bright and smart
Not a boy in all these parts would know my heart
My red heels would go flashin' where e'er my fancy would
My love would see and wish that he had taken me, when he could

If I had a ribbon bow to tie my hair
If I had a fancy sash so fair.

My parents had a '78 of Susan Reid that they bought back in the early 50's with this song on it. Hope it's close to the version you're looking for. Never heard that JJ Niles had anything to do with it.
