Family Rankin – Tailor's Daughter lyrics
Fell in love with the tailor's daughter
I fell hard head over heels
She showed me to her mother's parlour
Then we walked up the tailor's stairs
We courted well, we courted easy
Courted well from spring to fall
That tailor's daughter had me a-dreaming
Visions of the wedding hall
Lay me down in sheets of linen
If you please I'll stay all night
Come with me I'll dance at your wedding
Around to the left and around to the right
He'd stitch for her the finest gown
Pure silk fashioned like no other
They would come from miles around
For to see the tailor's daughter
With music in the village hall
You would hear the church bell ringing
Food and drink for one and all
Every songbird singing
Lay me down in sheets of linen
If you please I'll stay all night
Come with me I'll dance at your wedding
Around to the left and around to the right
I awoke in a far off place
So alone and mistaken
She'd gone off on the wedding night
Left me forsaken
I'm drifting high, I'm drifting low
Flowing out like water
Looking up down below
Searching for the tailor's daughter
Lay me down in sheets of linen
If you please I'll stay all night
Come with me I'll dance at your wedding
Around to the left and around to the right
Lay me down in sheets of linen
If you please I'll stay all night
Come with me I'll dance at your wedding
Around to the left and around
Around to the left and around
Around to the left and around
To the right
