D                   *      *          G          D

.. And the moon came up___, .. so quiet in the sky
D                           *      *          G          D
.. All the people gathered 'round, .. and the band was a-tuning
D                  G   A   *                              D
.. I can hear them now___, .. playing "Coming Through the Rye"

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bill_staines/the_roseville_fair_crd.html ]
D                      *     *          G         D
.. You were dressed in blue, .. and you looked so lovely
D                G      A   *                  D
.. Just a gentle flower___, .. of a small-town girl
D              *     *         G              D
.. You took my hand, .. and we stepped to the music
D                G     A   *                D
.. With a single smile___, .. you became my world


CHORUS:
D                    A     D   Em        A              D
.. And we danced all night___, .. to the fiddle and the banjo
A                 G      A                     D
.. Their drifting tunes, .. seemed to fill the air
D           A  D   Em       A        D
.. So long ago___, .. but I still re-member
A                  G     A                   D
.. When we fell in love, .. at the Roseville Fair


Now we courted well, and we courted dearly
And we'd rock for hours, on the front-porch chair
Then a year went by, from the time that I met you
And I made you mine, at the Roseville Fair


So here's a song, for all of the lovers
And here's a tune, that they can share
May they dance all night, to the fiddle and the banjo
The way we did, at the Roseville Fair


REPEAT LAST TWO LINES OF VERSE TO END (NO FINAL CHORUS)

NOTES:
- "*" in the chord line represents a new bar, play same chord
- "." in the lyric line represents a 1/8 note rest
