Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
Karen, time for an update. I see that when I made the music file of "If I had a Ribbon Bow," that I didn't save the lyrics. I thought they were in this thread, but they are not complete. I'll submit the song, but I can't supply all the lyrics now because I've already returned the book.

However, I've had a thought. I saved the music and lyrics for a song called "Come all you fair and tender ladies," which Niles collected in Kentucky in 1912. I think it's superior to "If I Had a Ribbon Bow." If you would like to sing a song with 'mountain sound" at the end of your course, it's the one to pick. I'll see if Joe will post it to a new thread called "Tune Add: Come all you fair and tender ladies."
