A Faire To Remember

words and music Traditional

Kind friends and companions, come join me in rhyme
Come lift up your voices in chorus with mine
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may and might never all meet here again

Here's a health to the company and one to my lass
Let us drink and be merry all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may and might never all meet here again

Here's a health to the dear lass that I love so well
Her style and her beauty, sure none can excel
There's a smile upon her countenance as she sits on my knee
Sure there's no one in in this wide world as happy as we

Our ship lies at harbor, she's ready to dock
I hope she's safe landed without any shock
If ever we should meet again by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me

KEY Dm

verse/chorus:

Background: I first heard this song at the West Texas Renaissance Festival. Admittedly, I didn't like it. But after numerous requests and suggestions by Andrew, we decided to learn it. Andrew found a couple good recorded versions by artists he doesn't remember. Then we went to work. And we love the resulting arrangement.
