Chilly Scenes of Winter Chilly scenes of winter Is trying to frost or snow Dark clouds are gathering'round me Where the chilly wind does blow. The night is almost over The chickens a-crowing for day I will ask you for an answer Oh, love what do you sway? This may be your answer I choose a single life I never thought it suited For me to be your wife. In about three weeks or later That lady's mind did change She writted him a letter Saying Mister I'm ashamed. If it is you are slighted And you so far from home Here is my heart, take it And claim it as your own. It was me you slighted And I'm so far from home I have another true lover One I can call my own. There sits a turtle dove On every bush and vine To weep and moan for your true-love While I rejoice with mine. From May Carver (Cousin Emmy) DT #650 Laws H12 RG
