                Scarlet Ribbons:Harry Belafonte.
Hit the top ten in 1956. The Browns
recorded it in 1959 and it went to #13.

#1. (Capo 7th fret for original.)

D        Em7   A7       D
I peeked in to say good night,
Em7   A7       Em7      D    
and I heard my child in prayer.
 D       Em7      A7      D
'And for me, some scarlet ribbons,
Em7     A7      Em7    D
scarlet ribbons for my hair.'

#2.
D       Em7         A7         D
All the stores were closed and shuttered,
Em7     A7           Em7      D
all the streets were dark and bare.
D      Em7      A7      D
In our town, no scarlet ribbons,
Em7     A7      Em7     D
scarlet ribbons for her hair.

CHORUS:
D           Em7      D7        G
Through the night my heart was aching,
Bm     F#+      Bm6      Em7    A7
just before the dawn was break..ing..

#3.
D        Em7     A7     D
I peeked in, and on her pillow,
   Em7    A7      Em7   D
in gay profusion, lying there.
D     Em7      A7      D
I saw ribbons, scarlet ribbons,
Em7     A7      Em7     D
scarlet ribbons for her hair.

CHORUS:#2.
D    Em7     D7   G  Em7
If I live to be a hundred..
Bm     F#+   Bm6       Em7  A7
I will never know from where..

#4.
D          Em7    A7      D
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons,
Em7     A7      Em7 A9  D
scarlet ribbons for her hair.


A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
