THE LASS OF HEXHAMSHIRE

THE LASS OF HEXHAMSHIRE
(J.Lowe / Lowe Life Music)

Those Border folks all know the sky’s so wide and boundless,
But did you think I’d let you go without a word of fondness?

Oh for the buff and the blue, oh for the cap and the feather,
There’s much I would say now to you, lass of Hexhamshire.

Did you ever hear her voice? It could torch a song with fire,
When mine became her choice, she left old Hexhamshire.

Away from the buff and the blue, over the moss and the mire,
Singing for me as well as you, lass of Hexhamshire.

I pulled her the whole world ‘round, she sand each word I gave her, ‘
Til one cold day I found she’d gone back to Hexhamshire.

Back to the buff and the blue, gone like the wind in the wire,
For years too short and too few, lass of Hexhamshire.

Watch for the buff and the blue, seek and you may find her,
I’d listen if I was you to the lass of Hexhamshire.
