ROAMING IN THE CLOVER.
Copyright, MDCCCXCIV, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by George Lester.
Roaming in the fields of clover, with sweet Jennie by my side,
Glad was I to be her lover, begging her to be my bride;
Daisies at our feet were smiling, nature wore its fairest dress,
Still, with all my words beguiling, she refused to answer "yes";
Still, with all my words beguiling, she refused to answer "yes."
Roaming in the clover, all the wide fields over,
Jennie's eyes were bright and blue us the skies above;
Hand in hand together, in the smiling weather,
Roaming in the clover fields and breathing words of love.
Bright her tender eyes were shining, with the glow love can but bring,
And her secret heart divining, to love's theme I could but cling:
And my tender vows repeating, all my heart's fond love to show.
Soon she gave my kiss its greeting, and she did not answer "no";
Soon she gave my kiss its greeting, and she did not answer "no." - Chorus.
