Blow Away The Morning Dew


There was a knight both young and fair,
Came riding o'er the hill
As he rode out one May morning
To see what he could kill.

Singing...
Blow away the morning dew
Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.

He look-ed high, he look-ed low,
He cast another look
And then he spied a pretty maid 
A-bathing in the brook.

Singing...
Blow away the morning dew
Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.

If you take me to my father's house,
'Tis wall-ed all around
Ye shall enjoy my precious love
And likewise twenty pounds.

Singing...
Blow away the morning dew
Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.

He mounted on his milk white steed,
And she upon another
And then they rode off down the lane
Like sister and like brother.

Singing...
Blow away the morning dew
Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.

But when she reached her father's gate,
So nimbly she popped in
She cried, "There stands the fool without,
And here's the maid within!"

Singing...
Blow away the morning dew
Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.

My father keeps a rooster 
But it will not tread a hen
He flaps his wings and flies about,
I think you're one of them.

Singing...
Blow away the morning dew
Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.

So if you meet a pretty girl 
As you ride o'er the hill
It's if you cannot when you may,
Ye shall not when you will.

























Blow Away the Morning Dew


There was a knight was drunk with wine
Came riding down the way,
And there he met a lady fair
among the cocks of hay,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

Says he, Shall you and I, lady,
Among the grass lie down,
And I will have a special care
Of rumpling of your gown.

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

If you will go along with me
Unto my father's hall,
You shall enjoy my maidenhead
And my estates and all,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

He put her on a milk-white steed,
Himself all on another,
And all the day they rode along
Like sister and like brother,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

And when she came to her father's gate
She tirled at the pin,
And ready stood the porter there
To let the fair maid in,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

Says she, I am a maid within,
And you're a fool without,
There never were a butcher's boy
Put me in so much doubt,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

There is a cock in father's barn
He never trod a hen.
He flies about and flaps his wings,
I think you're one of them,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

There is a flower in our garden
We call it marigold,
And if you will not when you may,
You shall not when you would,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.

When you meet a pretty maid
A mile or two from town,
Never mind her gay clothing,
But lay her on the ground,

Singing loudly whistle in the wind,
Blow the wind hi ho,
Blow away the morning dew,
How sweet the winds do blow.
