                These are the Chords for Kate Rusby's «The Holly and The Ivy» from her album «Christmas
Kate». These are NOT the chords to the normal song, so please don't expect them to be.
Any part in brakets () is an optional bar. I have worked this out on the accordion and 
piano, without the use of a guitar or a copy of the track, so I am not entirely sure what
key it is in, or where to put the capo, the chords may not even be correct, but they 
certainly sound nice and work wonders when busking. Enjoy!

       C     G       C
Oh the Holly and the Ivy,
C                        G
When they were both full grown,
   C                      F
of all the trees that are in the wood,
    C     G         C
the Holly bears the crown.

//      Chorus  //

    C      G      C
The rising of the sun,
        C              G
and the running of the deer,
    C       C7     F
the playing of the merry organ,
      C           G      C
sweet singing all in the choir.
(         C       G          C     )
(Oh sweet signing all in the choir.)

 // End of Chorus //

    C     G         C
The holly bears the blossom,
   C                 G
As white as the lily flower,
    C               F
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
   C      G     C
To be our sweet Saviour.

// Chorus //

    C     G       C
The holly bears a berry,
   C          G
As red as any blood,
    C               F
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
   C       G       C
To do poor sinners good:

// Chorus //

    C     G       C
The holly bears a prickle,
   C            G
As sharp as any thorn,
    C               F
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
   C         G          C
On Christmas day in the morn.

// Chorus //

    C     G       C
The holly bears a bark,
   C             G
As bitter as any gall,
    C               F
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
    C  G         C
For to redeem us all:

// Final Chorus //

    C      G      C
The rising of the sun,
        C              G
and the running of the deer,
    C       C7     F
the playing of the merry organ,
      C           G      C
sweet singing all in the choir.
(         C       G          C     )
(Oh sweet signing all in the choir.)
