Feb. 2021Song

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.
