Subject: Chords Add: THE HIRING FAIR (Ralph McTell)
Voila! I've only done verse one as there's rather a lot of them, but the chords are the same for each verse!
I went down to the hiring fair
for to sell my labour,
I noticed a maid in the very next row
and I hoped she'd be my neighbour.
Imagine then my delight
Am G F
when the farmer picked us both.
I spoke not a word on the cart to the farm,
but my heart beat in my throat.
The verse that starts "She turned to me as the sun went down" is in effect a half verse - use the chords for the first few lines and then just play the chords to the second few!
Hope that makes sense!
