American Old Time Song Lyrics: 23 Hattie May
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 23
Tune- "Maggie May."
Her fairy form is flitting now
Before my ardent gaze,
The light of heaven is on her brow,
And happy are her days.
Her face is bright as morning light,
Her breath like new-mown hay,
She is a creature gay and bright,
Sweet charming Hattie May.
My darling winsome Hattie,
With face as bright as day,
Your fairy form is sweet to see,
My charming Hattie May.
In years agone I knew her well,
And saw her budding charms;
Her loning nature I could tell
While nestling in my arms.
She is enshrined within my heart,
Grows sweeter every day;
May many years pass ere we part,
My charming Hattie May.-Chorus.
