Hi,

On the version of Southern Melody Boys, there's two phrases that I couldn't find out what they sing. I think I have almost everything else. If somebody can help me, it would be much appreciated! Many thanks in advance.

In a lonesome scenes of winter
Inclined to frost and snow
Dark clouds gather around me
The wind go loud and blow

I went to see my lover
She drew most scornfully
Asked her if she marry
She would not answer me                

(?)
Until the break of day
Waiting for a answer
Kind Miss what do you said?

If I'm to answer you
I choose a single life
It never thought it suited
For me to be your wife                        

I wrote to her a letter
And send it back in speed
Saying « I loved you once most dearly »
"I loved you once indeed »

(?)
In another I pursued
This world is wide and pleasant
There's more as good as you

I set there the live-long night
Until the break of day ...

It's out on Atlantic Ocean
Another I'll pursue
...

Here's how I hear it, from YouTube


LONESOME SCENES OF WINTER
As recorded by the Southern Melody Boys, 1937.

In lonesome scenes of winter,
Inclined to frost and snow,
Dark clouds gathered 'round me.
The window loud and blow.*

I went to see my lover.
She threw most scornfully.**
Asked her if she'd marry.
She would not answer me.

I set there the livelong night
Until the break of day,
Waiting for an answer.
"Kind miss, what do you say?"

"If I'm to answer you,
I'd choose a single life.
It never thought it suited
For me to be your wife."

I wrote to her a letter
And sent it back in speed,
Saying: "I loved you once most dearly.
I loved you once indeed.

"It's on the Atlantic Ocean
Another I'll pursue.
The world is wide and pleasant.
There's more as good as you."


* This line doesn't make sense to me. Maybe I'm mishearing it, but if I had to sing it, I'd sing "The wind so loud did blow."

** Likewise, I'd sing "She withdrew most scornfully."
