chorus 1:

|C / D / |G / Em And they danced all night - - to the fiddle and the banjo, / |Am / D / |G / / Their driftin' tunes - - seemed to fill the air, / |Am / D / |G / Em So long a-go - - but they still re-member, / |Am / D / |G / / - | When they fell in love - - at the Roseville Fair.

So here's a song, for all of the lovers, And here's a tune, that you can share, May you dance all night, to the fiddle and the banjo, The way they did, at the Roseville Fair.

The way they did, at the Roseville Fair.
