The Snow It Melts The Soonest

Words and Music: Traditional arranged and adapted by Jillian LaDage

O, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing
And the corn it ripens fastest when the frosts are settling in
And when a young man tells me that my face he’ll soon forget
Before we part, I wage a crown, he’s fain to follow it yet

The snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing
And the swallow skims without a thought as long as it is spring
But when spring goes and winter blows my lad an ye’ll be fain
For all your pride, to follow me, were’t cross the stormy main

O, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing
The bee that flew when summer shined, in winter cannot sting
I’ve seen a woman’s anger melt between the night and morn
And it’s surely not a harder thing to melt a woman’s scorn

O, never say me farewell here, no farewell I’ll receive
For you shall set me to the stile and kiss and take your leave
But I’ll stay here til the woodcock comes and the martlet takes his wing
For the snow it melts the soonest, when the winds begin to sing
