Scarlet Ribbons(Chords)

Browns

Key: E
Here is another song by the Browns 50s vintage.  Scarlet Ribbons was a 
big song for them.  This is my version of this beautiful song. 
 
Thanks,

                    SCARLET RIBBONS 
 
 Recorded on RCA Victor in the 50s by Jim Ed, Maxine and 
 Bonnie Brown. 
 slow 3/4 time (waltz) my favorite key on guitar E 
 
E I peeked A in to B7 say good E night  
A when I B7 heard  my A child in E prayer, 
And for A me some B7 scarlet E ribbons  
A scarlet B7 ribbons A for my E hair. 
 
All the B7 stores were closed and A shuttered 
C# All the streets were F# dark and B7 bare. 
E In our A town no B7 scarlet E ribbons 
A scarlet B7 ribbons A for her E hair. 
 
Through the B7 night my E heart was A aching 
C# Just before the F# dawn was B7 breaking, 
E I peeked A in and B7 on her E bed  
in A gay pro B7 fusion A lying E there 
I saw A ribbons B7 scarlet E ribbons  
A scarlet B7 ribbons A for her E hair. 
 
If I B7 live to E be a A hundred  
C# I will never F# know from B7 where 
E Came those A lovely B7 scarlet E ribbons  
A scarlet B7 ribbons A for B7 her E hair.
