All Around Me Hat

Author: unknown
my love she was fair, and my love she was kind and cruel the judge and jury that sentenced her away for theiving was a thing that she never was inclined to they sent my love across the sea ten thousand miles away

CHORUS All around my hat, I will wear the green willow all around my hat for a year and a day and if anyone should question me the reason for my wearing it I’ll tell them that my own true love is ten thousand miles away
I bought my love a golden ring to wear upon her finger a token of our own true love and to remember me and when she returns again, we never will be parted we’ll marry and be happy for ever and a day
CHORUS
seven, seven long years my love and I are parted seven, seven long years my love is bound to stay seven long years I’ll love my love and never be false-hearted and never sigh or sorrow while she’s far, far away
CHORUS
some young men there are who are preciously deceitful a-coaxin’ of the fair young maids they mean to lead astray As soon as they deceive them, so cruelly they leave them I’ll love my love forever though she’s far, far away CHORUS
