HARK AS THE BEE HUNTS FOR TREASURE
Trad slip jig. As sung by Vin Garbutt

CHORUS: Hark as the bee hunts for treasure
That's hid in the mountainy bloom
Me shuttle goes buzzing with pleasure
To gather me gold from me loom.

V1: 'Tis I can weave woolen and linen
The finest folk wear on their backs
So girl come give over your spinnin'
And wind up me wool and me flax. CHORUS

V2: Five years at the woolen and linen
I've laboured from morning to night
With a heart that beats heavy beginnin'
Is beating forever more light. CHORUS

V3: With guineas full up in me stockin' sole
Safe in the tick of me bed
It's soon that I'll rest without rocking
At Shrovetide with Willie I'll wed. CHORUS
