Frank Howe Lyr/Chords Req: The Rambles of Spring (Tommy Makem (8) Lyr Add: RAMBLES OF SPRING (Tommy Makem) 07 Sep 99

Here's the lyrics:


There's a piercin' wintry breeze
Blowin' through the budding trees,
And I button up my coat to keep me warm,
But the days are on the mend
And I'm on the road again
With me fiddle snuggled close beneath my arm.

CHORUS: I've a fine felt hat
And a strong pair of brogues.
I have rosin in me pocket for me bow,
And me fiddle strings are new,
And I've learned a tune or two,
So I'm well prepared to ramble. I must go.

I'm as happy as a king
As I catch a breath of spring,
And the grass is turning green as winter ends,
And the geese are on the wing,
And the twiddles start to sing,
And I'm going down the road to see my friends. CHORUS

I have friends in every town,
As I ramble up and down,
Makin' music at the markets and the fairs,
To the donkeys in the creels,
And the farmers makin' deals,
And the yellow-headed tinker sellin' wares. CHORUS

Here's to health to one and all,
To the big and to the small,
To the rich and poor alike and foe and friend,
And when we next meet again,
May our foes all turn to friends,
And may peace and joy be with you until then. CHORUS
