West Country Lady

Click Here for guitar tabs.

Over Pipers Stock Hill take the time for to wander
Across the main bridge to the North side and yonder
And if you look long to the west there’s a chance
That you’ll see her move down to the bridge for the dance
And she still hears the music of anvil and saw
And she still looks to nature to lay out the law

She’s a West country lady from back in the past
And she faces the ocean where noisy waves blast
On the rocks and the wind blows a gale from all quarters
Or summer sun sparkles on still waters down in the bay

She was there when they came on the very first ship
And she saw how the admirals ruled with a whip
And she worked with her man and her young sons and daughters
To harvest the fields and the woods and the waters
And often with sadness she’s looked to the sea
With a longing for times that were never to be

She’s a West country lady from back in the past
And she faces the ocean where noisy waves blast
On the rocks and the wind blows a gale from all quarters
Or summer sun sparkles on still waters down in the bay

Since the sea was the way between island and nation
And old ways were new ways in this planters station
She’s watched all the changes with pride and some sorrow
Some old ways remain and she hopes that tomorrow
Will kindly tend to the bountiful sea
And her land and her people will always be free

She’s a West country lady from back in the past
And she faces the ocean where noisy waves blast
On the rocks and the wind blows a gale from all quarters
Or summer sun sparkles on still waters down in the bay
