The Mummers Dance Chords

   
Pick Am bass and alt for a couple bars(Intro) 

Am                     G
When in the springtime of the year
          Em                   Am
When the trees are crowned with leaves
         Am                   G
When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew
   Em                  Am
Are dressed in ribbons fair

 Am                 G
When owls call the breathless moon
      Em                Am
In the blue veil of the night
    Am             G
The shadows of the trees appear
 Em                Am
Amidst the lantern light

(CHORUS) 
 Am                G
We've been rambling all the night
    Em                Am
And some time of this day
 Am           G
Now returning back again
   Em              Am
We bring a garland gay

Verse 2
Am                        G
Who will go down to those shady groves
    Em                Am
And summon the shadows there
   Am                     G
And tie a ribbon on those sheltering arms
        Em               Am
 In the springtime of the year
 
   Am                      G
The songs of birds seem to fill the wood
     Em               Am
That when the fiddler plays
 Am              G
All their voices can be heard
     Em                  Am
Long past their woodland days

(Repeat CHORUS)

Verse 3 
    Am                   G
And so they linked their hands and danced
        Em              Am
Round in circles and in rows
   Am              G
And so the journey of the night descends
     Em                 Am
When all the shades are gone
 
   Am             G
"A garland gay we bring you here
   Em              Am
And at your door we stand
   Am                G
 It is a sprout well budded out
    Em                Am
The work of Our Lord's hand" 

Repeat CHORUS x2   Am, G, Em, Am to fade
