Scarborough Fair – The History behind Lyrics

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,

Remember me to one who lives there,

He (she) once was a true love of mine.

Tell him (her) to make me a cambric shirt,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Without a seam or needle work,
Then (s)he’ll be a true love of mine.
Tell him (her) to wash it in yonder dry well
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Where water ne’er sprang, nor drop of rain fell
Then (s)he’ll be a true love of mine.
Tell him (her) to dry it on yonder grey thorn
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Which ne’er bore blossom since Adam was born
Then (s)he’ll be a true love of mine.
Tell him (her) to find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Between the salt water and the sea strand
Then (s)he’ll be a true love of mine
Plow the land with the horn of a lamb
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Then sow some seeds from the north of the dam
Then (s)he’ll be a true love of mine
Tell him (her) to reap it with a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
And tie up the sheaves with a rope made of heather
Then (s)he’ll be a true love of mine
If (s)he tells me (s)he can’t I’ll reply
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
“Let me know that at least you will try;”
Then (s)he’ll be a true love of mine
“Love imposes impossible tasks,”
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
“Though never more than your own heart asks,
And I must know you’re a true love of mine”

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,

Remember me to one who lives there,

He (she) once was a true love of mine.
