Someone could help me with the lyrics for "Lover Let Me In" as sung by Ian Campbell Folk Group?

Thanks!

Lover Let Me In

I came to my true love's window
Softly called her name
Cold and dark (...) the night and many miles
I travelled in the rain
Lover let me in

Chorus:
Oh, love is a pleasure when it's new
When it's old (then) love grows cold
Fades away like the morning (dew)

I (...) in my bedroom
Lover don't you know
My old mother (is in) the room (that) next mine
And lying wide awake
Lover you must go

I looked in your mother's window
She's (asleep) (...)
There she's lying smiling and sweetly
Breathing deeply like a baby
Lover let me in

(Then within) the darkness of her room
I heard a man say "close the window, love
It's cold and (...) here (...) out you
(Make'em) go away"

GUEST,allp1br- Thanks for posting what you can discern of the lyrics. If no one else comes to help I'll have a listen later. You did use the Filter to search Mudcat and the Digital Tradition, of course?

Here is a youtube sound file:

I hear it thus:

LOVER LET ME IN

I came to my true love's window
Softly called her name
Cold and dark the night
And many miles I travelled in the rain
Lover let me in

Chorus:
Oh, love is a pleasure when it's new
When it's old then love grows cold
Fades away like the morning dew

I can't let you in my bedroom
Lover don't you know
My old mother's in the room that's next to mine
And lying wide awake
Lover you must go

I looked in your mother's window
She's asleep within
There she's lying smiling sweetly
Breathing deeply like a baby
Lover let me in

Then within the darkness of her room
I heard a man say "Close the window, love
It's cold and draughty here in bed without you
Make him go away"
