IF I HAD A RIBBON BOW Huey Prince / Louis C Singer as recorded by Maxine Sullivan w John Kirby & his Orchestra Aug 1st, 1940 New York also rec by - Maxine Sullivan w Charlie Shavers Buster Bailey Russell Procope Billy Kyle & Specs Powell 1955 Janet Brace 1956 Odetta 1956 Caolyn Hester 1961 Fairport Convention 1968 Mildred Bailey Ane Brun (diff lyrics) Karen Dalton If I had a ribbon bow to tie my hair And a gown of calico that I could wear, I'd surely get a sweetheart, a prince or a king, A palace home where I would have everything! If I had a ribbon bow to tie my hair, This old world could come and go, I wouldn't care! I'd stay up in my castle,, and I'd always wear A ribbon bow so fine to tie my hair. All the live long day, To the Lord above me, All I do is pray For someone to love me! If I had a ribbon bow, all nice and clean, I could be a princess or a fairy queen! Prince charming then would court me, his love he would swear, If I had a ribbon bow to tie my hair. Here's a story of a girl, a story seldom told, What she wanted from this world was not of gems or gold! Her wishes were quite plain, as you will see, For of'en she would simply make this plea; All the live long day, To the Lord above me, All I do is pray For someone to love me! If I had a ribbon bow, all nice and clean, I could be a princess or a fairy queen! Prince charming then would court me, his love he would swear, If I had a ribbon bow, A pretty little ribbon bow, Prince charming then would court me, his love he would swear, If I had a ribbon bow to tie my hair.
