Nancy Spain

Nancy Spain
(Barney Rush)

Of all the stars that ever shone
Not one does twinkle like your pale blue eyes
Like golden corn at harvest time your hair
Sailing in my boat the wind gently blows and fills my sails
Your sweet scented breath is everywhere

Daylight peeping through the curtains of
The passing night time is your smile
The sun in the sky is like your laugh
Come back to me my Nancy linger for just a little while
Since you left these shores I know no peace nor joy

cho: No matter where I wander I'm still haunted by your name
     The portrait of your beauty stays the same
     Standing by the ocean, wondering where you've gone
     If you'll return again
     Where is the ring I gave to Nancy Spain?

On the day in spring when the snow starts to melt and
     streams to flow
With the birds I'll sing to you a song
In the while I'll wander down by bluebell grove
Where wildflowers grow
And hope my lovely Nancy will return
