Girl From The Hiring Fair - text

playlist

I went down to the hiring fair
For to sell my labour
And I noticed a maid in the very next row
I hoped she'd be my neighbour
Imagine then my delight
When the farmer picked us both
I spoke not a word in the cart to the farm
But my heart beat in my throat

My lodging was dry and my master fair
I gave him good measure
My envy grew like the corn in the field
For in his house was my treasure
And I'd watch her carry water
Or drive cows from the byre
And the heat of the sun made the corn grow high
With it my desire

She was in my dreaming
And in my dreams caress
The eyes and the lips and her dark brown hair
The curves beneath her dress
But harvest time it came at last
So heavy was the task
That the women and the men worked side by side
And I had her near at last

I swung harder with my scythe
Few words between us passed
I cursed my tongue-tied youthfulness
And I hoped that she'd hear my heart
All was safely gathered in
And we sat down to rest
My trembling fingers touched her arm
And she placed them on her breast

And then she turned to me
As the sun went down
And all my senses reeled
As we lay there on the scented ground
And the moon rose over the field

She was safely in my arms
When from the barn
Drifted the sound of a violin
And we hurried back to the farm
All were dancing in the lantern light
Music filled the air
And I thanked my stars for the harvest moon
And the girl from the hiring fair

All were dancing in the lantern light
And music filled the air
And I thanked my stars for the harvest moon
And the girl from the hiring fair
