D         G       D
If I had wings like Noah’s dove
                Bm           A     G
I’d fly up the river to the one I love
           D    G    D     A         D
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


              D            G         D
Well I had a man who was strong and tall
               Bm          A     G
Who moved his body like a cannonball
           D    G    D     A         D
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


                  D             G       D
I remember one evening in the pouring rain
           Bm            A      G
And in my heart was an aching pain
           D     G   D     A         D
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


         D         G        D
Bloody river was muddy and wild
               Bm           A       G
Can’t give a bloody for my unborn child
           D     G   D     A         D
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


              D           G     D
So sure as a bird flying high above
                  Bm                 A       G
Life ain’t worth living without the one you love
           D     G   D     A         D
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


           D     G   D     A         D
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
