Roseville Fair

Irish Song Lyrics - Roseville FairAuthor: Bill Stains

Oh the night was clear, and stars were shining
and the moon rose up, so quiet in the sky
and the people gathered 'round, and the band was tuning
I can hear them now, playin' "Coming Through the Rye"

and we danced all night, to the fiddle and the banjo
the driftin' tunes, seemed to fill the air
so long ago but I still remember
we fell in love, at the Roseville fair

you were dressed in blue, and you looked so lovely
just a gentle flower of a hometown girl
and you took my hand, and we stepped to the music
with a single smile, you became my world CHORUS

Well we courted well, and we courted dearly
and we rocked for hours on the front porch chair
and a year went by, since the day I met you
and I made you mine, at the Roseville Fair CHORUS

*ending same melody as chorus

So here's a song, for all you lovers
her's a tune that you can share
may you dance all night to the fiddle and the banjo
the way we did, at the Roseville Fair
