  D                      G                D 
I had a little nut tree, nothing would it bear,

A7           D      A7           D 
But a silver nutmeg and a golden pear;

                             G             D 
The King of Spain's daughter came to visit me,

    G   D       Em7        D      A7  D 
And all for the sake of my little nut tree.
