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.
Chorus:
Blow away the morning dew
Dew and the dew
Blow away the morning dew.

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

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

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

5. 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!"
Chorus:

6. 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.
Chorus:

7. 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.
Chorus:
