Ribbon Bow Karen Dalton Lyrics

It's So Hard to Tell Who's Going to Love You the Best is the debut album by American folk blues musician Karen Dalton, originally released in 1969 by Capitol Records (see 1969 in music).

The album was subsequently reissued on CD by the Koch label in 1997. Extended liner notes were written by Peter Stampfel of the Holy Modal Rounders, who writes:

She was the only folk singer I ever met with an authentic 'folk' background. She came to the folk music scene under her own steam, as opposed to being 'discovered' and introduced to it by people already involved in it."

In 1999, Megaphone issued the album again, this time with new packaging, a new booklet and a DVD with archival footage.

In 2009, Light In The Attic Records, once again, reissued the album on vinyl with new packaging and liner notes.

And here are the lyrics to the song Ribbon Bow by Karen Dalton.

If I had a ribbon bow

To hide my hair

If I had a fancy sash

My own true love would find me fair

My red shoes would go dancing

Whe'er my fancy would

My love would wish

That he had taken me while he could

If I were like city girls

And fair with smile

Not a man in all these parts

Would know my heart

My red shoes would go dancing

Whe'er my fancy chose

I'd lark about the sidewalk

And wear them foreign clothes

If I were like city girls

If I had a fancy sash

If I had a ribbon bow

To hide my hair

If I had a fancy sash

My own true love would find me fair
