THE LASS ON THE HILL

 

In a lonely house on a lonely hill,

Where the winds of winter play,

Lived a lovely lass with a loving heart

And I went there many a day

Yes I went there many a day.

 

I promised her when I left her there

That I wouldn’t be long away;

But the lovely lass with the loving heart

She waited for many a day

Yes she waited many a day.

 

When I came back to the house on the hill

To marry her was my plan;

But the lovely lass with the loving heart

She was married to another man

Yes she was married to another man.

 

In the lonely house where I live alone,

The winter winds blow strong,

For the lovely lass with the loving heart

I kept her waiting too long

Yes I kept her waiting too long.

 

And now she’s gone, I’ve been a fool,

And there’s nothing I can do;

Never leave the one you love

For she’ll meet someone better than you,

Yes she’ll meet someone better than you.

 

[Possible refrain:

The morning time and the evening time,

The night time and the day,

The summer time and the winter time,

And a life time passing away.]
