A Fairy`s Love Song

( Playback )

DmWhy should I Fsit and sigh, AmPuin` bracken, puin` bracken,
DmWhy should I Fsit and sigh AmOn the hillside Dmdreary?
AmWhen I see the Cplover rising AmOr the curlew Cwheeling,
AmThen I trow my Cmortal lover AmBack to me is Dmstealing.
DmWhy should I Fsit and sigh, AmPuin` bracken, puin` bracken,
DmWhy should I Fsit and sigh AmAll alone and Dmweary?

 

Why should I sit and sigh,
Puin’ bracken, Puin’ bracken
Why should I sit and sigh
On the hillside dreary?

When I see the plover rising
Or the curlew wheeling,
Then I trow my mortal lover,
Back to me is stealing.

Why should I sit and sigh,
Puin’ bracken, Puin’ bracken
Why should I sit and sigh,
All alone and weary?
