about

A young girl falls for a soldier.

lyrics

Winsome Ways

For all your winsome ways
Your eyes give you away
I swear by the moon and stars above
This night you'll be my love

Oh they say don't take up with a soldier
For you’ll lose him to the battleground
Oh they say don’t take up with a rover
For you know not where his ship is bound

For all your sport and games
Your eyes give you away
I swear by the Lord of heaven on high
I feel your heart in mine

Chorus

For all your winsome ways
Your eyes give you away
You raise a glass and play the fool
But your heart is wondrous true

Chorus
