The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Give Me Your Love and I'll Give You Mine

Just at the close of a 4 bright summer 1 day
Just as the twilight had faded a 5 way
1 Soft on the breeze like the 4 coo of a 1 dove
Someone was singing an 5 old song of 1 love

5 Tell me you love me and 1 say you'll be true
I love nobody in this world but 5 you
1 Your heart and my heart in 4 love will en- 1 twine
Give me your love and I'll 5 give you 1 mine

Come along with me to the quiet shady nook
Where flowers bloom at the side of the brook
Nature is sleeping, the birds are at rest
I'll place a wild rose on your beautiful breast

I've something to ask you while you're by my side
A question of love, of groom and of bride
But if you refuse me my heart it will pine
Give me your love and I'll give you mine
