sheet music

A strong wind from the Northeast
We will play at the water's edge
A strong wind from the Northeast
We will play at the water's edge
Three wheat ships came
We will play

At the water's edge
We will play on the island

Three daughters of the king wish to shop
We will play at the water's edge
Three daughters of the king wish to shop
We will play at the water's edge
And the pretty girls make the heart fly
We will play

At the water's edge
We will play on the island

The youngest was light on her feet
We will play at the water's edge
The youngest was light on her feet
We will play at the water's edge
To the side of the boat she skipped
We will play

At the water's edge
We will play on the island
At the water's edge
We will play on the island

How much do you sell your wheat for?
We will play at the water's edge
How much do you sell your wheat for?
We will play at the water's edge
For only you, six cents a bushel
We will play

At the water's edge
We will play on the island
At the water's edge
We will play on the island.
On the island...

I hear my mother calling me for supper
We will play at the water's edge
I hear my mother calling me for supper
We will play at the water's edge
And the grandchildren cry
We will play

At the water's edge
We will play on the island
At the water's edge
We will play on the island

Oh you beautiful, you lie
We will play at the water's edge
Oh you beautiful, you lie
We will play at the water's edge
You have never had children
We will play

At the water's edge
We will play on the island
At the water's edge
We will play on the island
At the water's edge
We will play on the island
On the island...
