Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms” is a poem composed by Irish poet Thomas Moore in 1808. He set the lyrics to a traditional Irish aire composed much earlier.
According to Wikipedia, Moore wrote the poem for his wife Elizabeth who was so badly scarred from small pox she refused to leave her room. He sang the poem outside her door and restored her shaken confidence.

There are several versions of tab for this song on harptab.com…

Here’s piano accompaniment to play along with…


If you find any other tab, standard notation, video examples, or backing tracks helpful, please post them in this thread.
It’s a lovely song--can’t wait to hear some versions of it here!

That's beautiful! I admit, I was wondering how this song would work on harmonica. After hearing that version, I'm really looking forward to learning it. Thanks for posting it!

Would love to learn how to play like Sarge, unfortunately being a beginner I still rely on tab sheets to know what notes to play.
Do they even have a tab sheet to show how to play like this?

Tab tells you which hole to play, notation tells you how to play it. :)

What I have been doing so far to learn is using songs from YouTube like this

It has helped a lot. It shows the tabs and lets me listen to what it is supposed to sound like.
I found the tabs for Endearing Young Charms

But it’s not like Sarge plays
