A Valentine Folk Song
(adapted from Foggy Foggy Dew)
When I was a bachelor,
I lived all alone,
An apprentice to my tra-ade.
And the best thing I did at that time of my life,
Was to woo a fair young maid.
I wooed her in the summer time,
And through the winter to-o.
Until at last she told me that–
She truly loved me too.
Again I’m a bachelor,
I live by myself,
Retired from my tra-ade.
Each time I look into the eyes of my son,
He reminds me of that fair young maid.
I’m reminded of the summer times,
All of the winters to-o.
And the many many times I held her in my arms
All because our love was true.
