Country Life

G                                  C        D
In spring we sow at the harvest mow
       G                              C             D
And work as the seasons round they go
          G                   C           D
But of all the times if choose I may
D                                                               G
'Twould be ramblin' through the new mown hay

   Chorus:
For I like to rise when the sun she rises
Early in the Morning
I like to hear them small birds singing
Merrily upon their branches
And Hurrah! for the life of a country lass
And to ramble in the new mown hay

In winter when the skies are gray
We hedge and we ditch our times away
But in summer when the sun shines gay
We go ramblin' through the new mown hay.

O' William is me darlin' gay
And he be a-workin' most e'very day
But I love him best in the month of May
When we're ramblin' in the new mown hay
