Scarborough Fair is a timeless folk song from England. This is its most famous melody (yes, there are others, less familiar, but also beautiful).

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 the folk song, Scarborough Fair, is public domain, Simon and Garfunkel's 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.
