Snowy Day Music

Music

 

Oh the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing;
And the corn it ripens fastest when the frosts are setting in;
And when a young man tells me that my face he’ll soon forget,
Before we part, I’d bet a crown, he’d be fain to follow it yet.

Oh the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing;
And the swallow skims without a thought as long as it is spring;
But when spring blows and winter goes my lad then you’d be fain,
With all your pride for to follow me, were it ‘cross the stormy main.

Oh the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing;
And the bee that flew when summer shone in winter he won’t sing;
And all the flowers in all the land so brightly there they be,
And the snow it melts the soonest when my true love’s for me.

So never say me farewell here, no farewell I’ll receive,
You can meet me at the stile, you’ll kiss and take your leave;
And I’ll wait it till the woodcock crows or the martin takes its leave,
Since the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing.
