All around my hat, I will wear the green willow, 

And all around my hat, for a twelve-month and a day. 

And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearin' it, 

It's all for my true love who's far, far, away 

[D] Fare thee  
[A] well cold  
[D] winter, 

and fare thee well cold  
[A] frost. 

For  
[D] nothing  
[A] have  
[D] gained, 

but my own true  
[E] love I’ve  
[A] lost. 

I’ll  
[A] sing and I'll be  
[D] merry, 

when oc  
[G]casion  
[Bm] I do see 

He's a  
[D] false de  
[A]luded  
[D] young man, 

let him go,  
[A] fare well  
[D] he 

[D] The  
[A] other night he  
[D] brought me 

a fine diamond  
[A] ring 

But he  
[D] thought to  
[A] have de  
[D]prived me 

of a far  
[E] better  
[A] thing 

But  
[A] I being  
[D] careful, 

like  
[G] lovers  
[Bm] ought to be, 

He's a  
[D] false de  
[A]luded  
[D] young man, 

let him go,  
[A] fare well  
[D] he 

Chorus 

[D] All a  
[A]round my  
[D] hat, 

I will wear the green  
[A] willow, 

And  
[D] all a  
[A]round my  
[D] hat, 

for a twelve-month  
[E] and a  
[A] day. 

And if anyone should  
[D] ask me 

the  
[G] reason why I'm  
[Bm] wearin' it, 

[A] It's  
[D] all  
[A] for my  
[D] true love who's far, 

[A] far, a  
[D]way

It's a  
[D] quarter  
[A] pound of  
[D] reason 

and a half a pound of  
[A] sense 

A  
[D] small  
[A] sprig of  
[D] time 

and as much  
[E] of pru  
[A]dence 

You mix them all to  
[D]gether 

and  
[G] you will  
[Bm] plainly see 

He's a  
[D] false de  
[A]luded  
[D] young man, 

let him go,  
[A] fare well  
[D] he
