words and music by Arlo Guthrie

Sheet Music:
This Is The Arlo Guthrie Book - PDF

Code:
transcribed by Robert Helling (robert@research.nj.nec.com)

   F                 A7
1) I had a friend, a friend you could trust
Dm            Bb           Bo
Went into the park and got busted
F         G7                 C7
Doin' the Ring-Around-A-Rosy-Rag.
F                 A7
Went to the park, late at night
Dm                        Bb            Bo
Ring-Around-A-ROSY in the middle of the night
        F                 G7            C7   F    C7
Yes, we all should do the Ring-Around-A-Rosy-Rag

Ch) Ring around, ring around Rose
Touch your nose and blow your toes
And mind after doin' the Ring-Around-A-Rosy-Rag.
Ring around, ring around Rose
Touch your nose and blow your toes
And mind after doin' the Ring-Around-A-Rosy-Rag.

2) We ought to send Officer Joe Strange
To some Australian mountain range
So we all could do the Ring-Aroud-A-Rosy-Rag
Would you like to put Philadelphia upthight, one mass
Ring-Aroud-A-Rosy in the middle of the night
Yes, we all should do the Ring-Aroud-A-Rosy-Rag

Ch)
F          A7       D7
Touch your nose and blow your toes
    G7                   C7
And mind after doin' the Ring-Around-A-Rosy-Rag.
.................................................................
Chorus has the same chords as the verse.
Mind that the second half of the second verse begins earlier,
so that F comes with "like".

F  o-o-3-2-1-1
A7 0-0-2-2-2-3
Dm o-0-0-2-3-1
Bb 1-1-4-4-4-1
Bo o-o-0-1-0-1
G7 3-2-0-0-0-1
C7 0-3-2-3-1-0
D7 o-0-0-2-1-2
(o means omit, 0 means open string)
