    1:
    GC
    A bear there was, a bear a bear 
    GD
    All black and brown and covered in hair 
    GC
    Three boys, a goat, and a dancing bear 
    AmD
    They danced and spun up to the fair 
    GC
    Oh! Sweet she was, and pure and fair 
    GD
    The maid with honey up in her hair 
    GC
    He smelled her all on the summer air 
    AmCD
    The maid with honey up in her hair 
    EmCEmC
    From there, to here, from here to there 
    GDC
    All black and brown and covered in hair 
    EmCEmC
    Smelt that girl on the summer air 
    GDG
    The bear, the bear, and the maiden fair 
    2 (same chords as first half of Verse 1):
    Oh I'm a maid and I'm pure and fair
    I'll never dance with a hairy bear
    I called the knight, but you're a bear
    All black and brown and covered in hair
    (repeat chords):
    From there to here, from here to there
    All black and brown and covered in hair
    Smelt that girl on the summer air
    The bear, the bear, and the maiden fair
    And that just about sums it up. This is my first tab, so the formatting may be a little
    off, but the chords should be just about spot-on. Noticed there weren't any tabs for
    this up yet, so decided to see if I could just piece it together by ear. Let me know if
    there are any amendments to be made, otherwise, enjoy :)
