The Snow It Melts the Soonest

The snows they melt the soonest When the winds begins to sing And the corn it ripend fastest When the frosts are settling in And when a woman tells me That my face she'll soon forget Before we part I'll wage a crown She's fain to follow yet
The snows they melt the soonest When the winds begin to sing And the swallow flies without a thought As long as it is spring But when spring goes and winter blows My love then you'll be fain For all your pride to follow me Across the raging main
The snows they melt the soonest When the winds begin to sing And the bee that flew when summer shone In winter cannot sting And I've seen a woman's anger melt Between the night and morn So it's surely not a harder thing To melt a woman's scorn
So don't you bid me farewell here No farewell I'll receive For you will lie with me, my lass Then kiss and take your leave And I'll wait here till the moorcrock calls And the martin takes the wing For the snow they melt the soonest When the winds begin to sing
