I'm a rough edged man a tiller of the land
All I know is to work hard with my hands
But I'm a holding a deep affection for you
Could you find a place in your heart for such a man

Will you take my hand Miss Pauline would you
For all my failings Miss Pauline here I stand
Will you take my hand Miss Pauline could you
And make me the world's happiest man

All I've garnered in this world I will share with you
We will stand together against every coming storm
I know I'm not the best of all that have suited you
MY visage is of a man windblown, darkened and worn

If we should marry I would tend you every need
Ne're raise my voice or treat you unkind
I offer a plain speaking and God fearing man
Poor and wrongful ways I will leave behind

This song had a nice feel. The instruments blended well with the main theme. I thought the different sections blended nicely and the transitions worked well also. I liked the soft quality in the singer's voice, it worked well with the lyrics and added to the overall mood. I liked the variety of instruments used here as well the little counter themes they added were nice.

A very "honest" interpretation of the lyrics. I would defiantly "Take Your Hand" ! Lovely song!

I liked the emotion I felt in this song. What a beautiful country tune.

nice mellow and sad but happy
