There was once a young maiden of tender grace,
Laughing blue eyes and a winsome face,
Also a youth, brimming with truth,
Got married one day in spring.
Through the sweet scented summer they knew no fear,
But the mills had all closed in the winter drear;
Then when the lad was gloomy and sad
This is the song she would sing:

Sweetheart, fond heart, from your side I will ne'er part,
We'll be together, love, in sunshine or in rain:
Don't he repining, what is the use of complaining,

Oh, the cold, cheerless winter soon passed away,
Spring came with flowers to deck sweet May;
Maiden and lad grew to be glad,
And sung like the birds in spring.
The dark shadows of sorrows ne'er came again
To their sweet little cottage just down the lane,
Where at the door, when his work was o'er,
Shed kiss him and then she'd sing:- Chorus.
