lyrics

Weyhill Fair

So if you’re going down
To the Weyhill Fair
Send my love to the girl
With a flower her hair

Tell her I remember
Her so very well
And my hard labour and saving
Will one day be her wealth

I wonder if she still thinks of me at all
One look in those blue eyes and I did fall

Take for her this necklace
To wear upon her chest
Tell her I’ll be home soon
When the lord will grant me rest

For I made to her a promise
No matter what may change
I’ll come for her, my true love,
When I return to stay

I wonder if she still thinks of me at all
One look in those blue eyes and I did fall

So you’re heading back to that Weyhill Fair
Send my love to the girl with the flower in her hair
