Similar to a song Gordon Bok recorded:

I HELD A LADY

I held a lady, O laddie daddie
I held a lovely red haired girl,
I held a lady, O laddie daddie
I held a lovely red haired girl,

I know that she was warm
For I held her and touched her
I held her so long
It was lovely holding her against my body

I see her laughing I see her smiling
I feel her arms around me
From morning when sun is shining
Till evening even when night is falling down
All down the calling way Calling yo ho young lady
For you red haired lady
Laddie daddie diddle a daddle diddle lady

O I remember, how I remember, Old days when I was young days
When I held a lady o laddie daddie
I held a lovely red haired girl,
Old days are dead and gone days
A light in the morning A light in the sun
Laddie daddie diddle a daddle diddle lady

Red lips that love at my lips are hard
And thighs hips and legs and eyes lips
Away in the dawning, day laddies dawning
I looks along the old road.
And old Sally Noggin bog road
Where I held a lady
Where I held a lady lovely yadin daddin
Diddly adden diddin didden lady

O I remember how I remember
Old days when I was young days
When I held a lady O laddie daddie
I held a lovely red haired girl
Old days are dead and gone days
Alive in the morning, Alive in the sun
Laddie daddie diddle a daddle diddle lady

I started singing it when a "lovely red haired girl" came into my life and quit singing it when she said we would only be friends. In the original version the girl has brown hair but I felt comfortable adjusting the words to fit the woman.
