Lyrics

THE HEXAMSHIRE LASS


Away with the buff and the blue
And away wlth the cap and the feather
I want to see my lass
Who lives in Hexamshire


CHORUS:
Over the Sabie Syre and over the moss and the bire
I want to see my lass who lives in Hexamshire


Her father loves her well
Her mother loves her dearer
I love her better than the both
But man, I can't get near her

CHORUS

If only I could be
Lying there aside her
While I must bide here
My arms will be denied her
CHORUS

Her skin is like the silk
And her hair is like the silver
Her breasts are deep and cool
They'll warm when I get near her

CHORUS


Ah this love of mine
Of this love I am weary
Sleep I can't get none
For thinking of me dearie

CHORUS


Away the binding shllling
Away with the cap and the feather
I want to see my iass
Who lives in Hexamshire

CHORUS
