Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
Subject: Lyr Add: IF I HAD A RIBBON BOW (from Simon Sisters
If I Had a Ribbon Bow
(Hughie Price and Lou Singer)
(as recorded by the Simon Sisters, 1964)

If I had a ribbon bow to bind my hair,
If I had a fancy sash, my love would think me fair;
And when he'd go to Frankfort, a-loggin' on the rise,
He'd bring me back with his own hands a very pretty prize.

If I were like city girls, so fair and smart,
Not a lad in all these parts would know my heart.
And then I'd live in Frankfort where all the loggers go,
I'd march about the settlements and wear foreign clothes

If I had a ribbon bow to bind my hair,
If I had a fancy sash, my love would think me fair;
My red heels would go flashing where my fancy would,
My love would look and wish that he had taken me when he could.

If I had a ribbon bow to bind my hair.
