THE LOG DRIVER'S WALTZ
If you ask any girl in the parish around
What pleases her most from her head to her toes,
She'll say, "I'm not sure if its business of yours,
But I'd like to waltz with a log driver."
CHORUS: For he goes burling down the down white water.
That's where a log driver learns to step lightly.
It's burling down the down white water,
The log driver's waltz pleases girls completely.
When the drive's nearly over, I like to go down
And watch all the lads as they work on the river;
For I know one night they'll come into town,
And we all like to waltz with a log driver.
Now to please both my parents, I had to give way,
And dance with the doctor, the merchant, the lawyer.
Well, their manners were fine but their feet are like clay,
And none has the style of my log driver.
Well, I've taken my chances with all types of men,
But none is so sweet as my lad on the river,
And when the drive's over, if he asks me again,
I think I will marry my log driver.
If you (G) ask any girl in the par(C)ish around
