Scarborough Fair is a timeless folk song from England. This is its most famous melody (yes, there are others, less familiar, but also beautiful).
Hayley Westenra of Celtic Woman sings it beautifully on A New Journey:
Here is the free Scarborough Fair voice arrangement in a good range for most singers, the key of Dm. (The version on my Beginning Guitar page, while great for guitarists, is not easy for most sopranos, especially young girls, to sing with strength. Too low.)

If you were looking for the vocal duet that Simon and Garfunkel sang, I'm sorry I can't offer it here. Though this folk song is public domain, their ARRANGEMENT of the music is NOT public domain.
I'm pretty sure Simon and Garfunkel wrote the version they sang, which means it is their copyrighted intellectual property! You will have to buy their version in a music store, either online or offline.
Enjoy this simple but beautiful free Scarborough Fair voice sheet music arrangement for singing students!

Hi! Is this only for voice? I ask this, because I didn't realise- and I play keyboard. It sounded fine- but I just want to know! P.S. I really love this …
