Cold and Haily Night

Line
Melody -
Line

collected by Sabine Baring-Gould, from a John Woodrich

My cap is frozen to my Head
My feet my fingers chill and dead
My heart is like a lump of lead
With standing at your window pane.
Chorus:
Oh let me in fair maiden bright
It is a cold and haily night
And I won't, And I won't go back again.

2. Your Dad and Mam are fast asleep
The raindrops from the thatching weep
And here against your wall I creep
And standing at your window pane.
Chorus:

3. And then she rose and let him in
She kissed his frozen lips and chin
And so this lad her heart did win
By standing at her window pane.
Chorus:
Now all is joy and warmth and light
Outside a cold and haily night
And I won't, And I won't go back again.
