Billy Bragg – Hesitating Beauty lyrics

For your sparkling cocky smile
I have walked a million miles
Begging you to come wed me in the spring
Why do you my dear delay,
What makes you laugh and turn away?
You're a hesitating beauty, nora lee

Well I know that you are itching to get married,
Nora lee
And I know I am twitching for the same thing,
Nora lee
By the stars and clouds above,
We can spend our lives in love
You're a hesitating beauty, nora lee

We can build a house and home
Where the flowers come to bloom
Around our yard I'll nail a fence so high
That the boys with peeping eyes
Cannot see that angel face
Of my hesitating beauty, nora lee

We can ramble hand in hand
Across the grasses of our land
I'll kiss you for each leaf on every tree
We can bring our kids to play
Where the dry winds blow today
If you'll quit your hesitating, nora lee

Words: woody guthrie 1949 - music: jeff tweedy
