W:. W:Oh I wish once again in the north I could be. W:How sadly I roamed and lament my dear home, W:Where lads and lasses are making the hay W:Where the bells they do ring W:For the oak and the ash, W:And the bonny ivy tree W:All flourish and bloom W:In my north country. W:. W:And the little birds do sing, W:And the maidens and meadows are pleasant and gay. W:No doubt if I please, I could marry with ease W:For where bonnie lasses are, lovers will come W:For the oak and the ash, W:And the bonny ivy tree W:All flourish and bloom W:In my north country. W:. W:But the lad that I wed, W:Must be North country bred, W:And must carry me back to my North country home. W:For the oak and the ash, W:And the bonny ivy tree W:All flourish and bloom W:In my north country. % % % % %
