Sure -- "The Kind of Love You Never Recover From", and "Say You Will", both by contemporary songwriters, come to mind. And there's always "The Water is Wide" which I have always thought of as a beautiful love song, and "Woody knows nothing but pecking on a bough.,.." likewise.

Sweet and tender, deep and rich
The kind that lasts, without a hitch
True and trusting, in shimmering glow
That verdant love we need to know

Naught bawdies bleak, nor grim lust lures
To light a song with bright futures
But solid 'victions, steady... strong
To sing together this whole life long

something like this?

Circle of Hearts

(tune the shearing's nae for you)


Will you take your hand in mine, my bonnie lassie-o?
Will you take your hand in mine, my bonnie lassie-o?
If you take your hand in mine, shivers will float down my
spine,
When our fingers, they entwine, my bonnie lassie-o.


May I look into your eyes, my bonnie lassie-o?
May I look into your eyes, my bonnie lassie-o?
Let me look into your eyes, where my heart it softly lies
As we stand beneath the skies, my bonnie lassie-o.


May I kiss upon your lips, my bonnie lassie-o?
May I kiss upon your lips, my bonnie lassie-o?
May I kiss upon your lips? My heartbeat lightly skips
When I hold you close to me, my bonnie lassie-o.


Will you have this dance with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
Will you have this dance with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
If you'll have this dance with me, We will float upon the sea
As I hold you in my arms, my bonnie lassie-o.


Do you wish to wed with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
Do you wish to wed with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
If you wish to wed with my, my heart will happy be
As I watch you grow old with me, my bonnie lassie-o.

Something That We Do
Clint Black
I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
I still believe the words we said
Forever will ring true

Love is certain, love is kind
Love is yours and love is mine
But it isn't something that we find
It's something that we do

It's holding tight, lettin' go
It's flying high and laying low
Let your strongest feelings show
And your weakness, too

It's a little and a lot to ask
An endless and a welcome task
Love isn't something that we have
It's something that we do

We help to make each other all that we can be
Though we can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that you can't tell where I end and where you start

It gives me heart remembering how
We started with a simple vow
There's so much to look back on now
Still it feels brand-new

We're on a road that has no end
And each day we begin again
Love's not just something that we're in
It's something that we do

We help to make each other all that we can be
Though we can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that you can't tell where I end and where you start

Love is wide, love is long
Love is deep and love is strong
Love is why I love this song
And I hope you love it too

I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
Love isn't just those words we said
It's something that we do

There's no request too big or small
We give ourselves, we give our all
Love isn't someplace that we fall
It's something that we do


The Moon is Still Over Her Shoulder - Hugh Prestwood

She's fixed in his mind like a picture
He's kept in his wallet for years
and the image it's never been tarnished
by the blood, sweat and tears
and after all of these years now....
The moon is still over her shoulder
the stars are still falling above
she isn't minute older
and he, he's still falling in love....

Now sometimes he finds it's amazing
that all of their children are wed
their mother she's still turning 18
and turning his head
yea, she still turns his head....

when the moon is over her shoulder
and the stars are falling above
and she isn't one minute older
and he, he's still falling in love......

......and the moon is still over her shoulder
and the ribbon is still in her hair
and he, he still sees her dancin'
and the music just hangs in the air....


If I Keep My Heart Out of Sight

If I keep on talking now
I'll only start repeating myself
And all I can say is
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

If I slip and tip my hand
I'm certain to scare you away
Then what would I say
I'd be hurting I'm certain
I'd be uncool to let you know that you're the one
The fool who jumped the gun

'Cause I've been advised by other guys
You've left behind
Your goodbyes are somewhat unrefined
But if I play my role just right
Tonight could be my lucky night
And you could be mine

If I present it to you
With a flower in the moonlight
Shiny and new
Well, you couldn't say no tonight
If I keep my heart out of sight

If I play my role just right
Then Tonight could be my lucky night
And you could be mine

If I present it to you
With a flower in the moonlight
Oh, shiny and new
Well, you couldn't say no tonight
If I keep my heart out of sight
____________________________________________________________

At Last

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

At last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

You smile, you smile
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known


You smile, you smile
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

At last... at last

At heart its caring more for what happens to someone else than you do for what happens to you. If that's not there, whatever it may be, it's not love.

Yes... certainly some good ones so far...

"Something that we do" is quite a 'tour de force' and I particularly like it's sentiment...

R Burns sure writes some great ones... though a bit on the 'outside' of endurance... ala "Twas nea her bonny blue ee"... I do believe that the fine song entitled "The Banks of the Devon" includes reference to Jean, tho...

I'll check out "The Flower from the fields of Alabam" real soon...

"Popsicle Toes" is... well... still sort of irritating to me, even after 25 years... though I'm sure that they are made from 100% real fruit juice... ;^) Just a few to many high school memories in that one...

Go Deep! ttr

Burns did write a song about his Bonny Jean:

O' all the airts
The winds can blow
I dearly love the west
Tis there a bonnie lassie lives
The lass that I love best
Where flowers grow
And rivers flow
And many's the hill between
There's none I'll put before her
She's my ain
My Bonny Jean...

Come to me, bend to me, kiss me good day.
Give me your lips, and don't take them away...

An Irish classic...

Then there's "Call and Answer" found on a De Dannan album...

You are the call, I am the answer
You are the wish and I am the way
You the music, I the dancer
You are the night, and I am the day.

(I have sung that one at TWO weddings!)

Congratulations on finding love!

It could not happen to a nicer fella.

"Come to me, bend to me" is from "Brigadoon" - I think written in the late 1940's-early 1950's? Anyway either Van Johnson or Gene Kelly sang it to Cyd Charisse in the movie. It's a very pretty song.

RIBBON of GOLD                           

Your eyes are like the morning light
That warms me when I'm cold
your lips are gentle as a summer wind
Your love is like a river winding
Like a golden ribbon
Through a magic land that only lovers find

Chorus:
Ribbon of gold that wraps around my heart like sunshine
I've been told that love can happen more than one time
But I believe when I'm old
The one that I'll reach out to hold
Will still be you as time weaves through
That ribbon of gold

Of all the treasures in this world
That men have bought and sold
There's none so dear as love that's given freely
And where some see the chains that bind
I see a golden ribbon winding
In the kind of love you're offering to me
(Chorus) --(Repeat Chorus)

By Margaret Farraday Smith (sp?). Sung by the Family Brown.

My wife IS my second wife (love can happen more than one time!),
and I have sung this with her, and to her for 20 years.

One of my favorite songs!

What about the Moose Song for a juicy one??


When I was a young lad I used to like girls,
I'd play with their corsets and fondle their curls.
'Till one day, my lady I caught with some churl,
Now you'd never get treated that way by a moose.

Chorus
Moose, moose, I likes a moose,
I've never had anything quite like a moose.
I've had lots of lovers, my life has been loose,
But I've never had anything quite like a moose.

Now when I'm in mood for a very good lay,
I go to my closet and get me some hay.
I go to my window and spread it around.
'Cause moose always come when there's hay on the ground.

Chorus...

Gorillas are all right on Saturday night,
Lions and tigers, they puts up a fight.
But it's just not the same when you slam your caboose,
As the feeling you get when you humps with a moose.

Chorus

I've done it with beasties with long flowing hair,
I'd do it with snakes if their fangs were not there.
I've done it with walrus, a monkey, and goose,
But it's just not the same when you screw with a moose.

Chorus

Now that I am old and advanced in my years,
I look back on my life and shed me no tears.
As I sit in my chair with my glass of Matheus,
Playing Hide-The-Salami with Melba the Moose.

Chorus...

What about this gem from Ian Dury?

Honeysuckle Highway

Exploring every avenue of love on the honeysuckle highway
Eschewing every vestige of regret we gaily slip along
Displaying all the evidence of mirth on the daffodyllic byway
And needing no excuse to have a laugh 'cos we're doing nothing wrong

You want magic? I'll provide it
You want daydream? I'm inside it
You want mystery? It will find you
You've got a moonbeam right behind you

Cruising down carnality canal in my canoe can I canoodle?
Rounding every bending that we're wending in a loopy disarray
Evincing all the properties of rapture with a sybaritic splendour
And shedding every nagging little footle that is getting in the way

You want magic? I can do it
You want lovelight? Nothing to it
You want everything to be groovy?
You got me now, let's get moving

Come with me where the air is free
And spirits can in harmony unite
Swim with me in the rainbow sea
We're strangers to catastrophe tonight

Where all the clocks tell different times
And no-one finds the time to be uptight
Where sweet suggestions grow on trees
And love explodes as well indeed it might

Exploring every avenue of love on the honeysuckle highway
And needing no excuse to have a laugh 'cos we're doing nothing wrong

You want magic? Well, you've got it
You want licence? I forgot it
You want romance? Let's get busy
I've got magic to make you dizzy

Come with me to the special place
The first thing you get on your face, a smile
As secrets flourish in their space
So love will cherish every grace and style

When pressure's on another case
We get along without a trace of bile
Though memories we'll ne'er erase
Our happiness can run apace meanwhile

You wore a bandana, I wore navy blue
We met in Havana at quarter past two
Across the Savannah and down to the beach
You munched a banana, I nibbled a peach

You played a small solo, I muffled a drum
You offered a polo, I stuck with my gum
I danced a light polka, you threw a few hoops
I was Oscar Homolka, you were Marjorie Proops

Have to agree with JennieG - "so fair art thou, my bonnie lass, so deep in love am I" - I think it's a combo of the words & the melody.

Also - Donal Og is very passionate. LOVE Rod Paterson's versions of Braes O' Balquhidder & Laird O'Drum. (Talk about long-lasting love - they'll be together so long their dust will mingle until indistinguishable.)



Among modern songs, I'm partial to Richard Thompson's "Cooksferry Queen" - "She could make wine out of Thames River water, she could make a believer out of me."
Also, Robbie Robertson's "Broken Arrow," Sting's "Fields of Gold," & Bruce Cockburn's "Sahara Gold" (which is more of-the-moment than everlasting, but still............)


olddude's right too --- probably most of us feel some of the juiciest, most passionate are the ones we've written ourselves...;-)

I keep circling back to two:

A-Growing, certainly one of the saddest love and death songs (Unquiet Grave a close second)

and

The Water Is Wide, the champion of all traditional love songs ... the rare complete version of Waly Waly (Ewan MacColl is one who sang it) stands as a close second to that one.
