Lammastide

 
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Lammastide All:
Ripe golden fields and the bounty they bring
Reason enough for to dance and to sing
Dance for who knows if we'll live till it's spring
Sing!
For it's Lammastide

Winds of the winter
As sharp as a thorn
Soon will assault us
As sure as we're born

Girl:
Who will protect us?
A doll made of corn

All:
Dance!
For it's Lammastide

Men:
Please spend the season
Pressed in my arms
Rest in my arms

Women:
Merrily, merrily
We'll end the season
Wrapped in your arms

Men:
Verily, verily

All:
Ripe golden fields and the bounty they bring
Reason enough for to dance and to sing
Dance for who knows if we'll live till it's spring
Sing!
For it's Lammastide!

Men:
Please end the season
Pressed in my arms
Blessed in my arms

Women:
Verily, verily
Although we may protest in your arms
We'll nest in your arms

Men:
Merrily, merrily

All:
Ripe golden fields and the bounty they bring
Reason enough for to dance and to sing
Dance for who knows if we'll live till it's spring
Sing!
For it's Lammastide!
Dance!
For it's Lammastide!
Sing!
For it's Lammastide!

(A young girl is excluded from the festivities. Her mother scolds her ands she does not enter the church with the others.)

Mother:
You'll wait outside till you see sense my girl.

(Hartright, left alone with the child, sees the upset girl and goes up to her.)

Hartright:
What's wrong, child?

Girl:
She didn't believe me. She said I were tellin' tells!

Hartright:
About what?

Girl:
Do you believe in ghosts sir?

Hartright:
I believe the dead go on. We carry them inside us.

Girl:
I saw a ghost sir. Yester'een at the gloaming. Arl' in white, sir. Just as a ghost should be.

Hartright:
The ghost of a woman?

Girl:
That's right, sir. A woman arl' in white.

Hartright:
Where did you see her?

Girl:
Over there, sir, in the graveyard sir. It scared me half to death!

(The girl runs away.)
