Occasionally I like to sit down and write a song in the old trad-folk ballad style. It will come as no surprise to learn it's about a guy who falls in love only to find out the girl of his dreams has promised to marry someone else.


There's a town far away where we met one day
Where her beauty enthralled me completely
It was love at first sight as we strolled through the night
Then I gave my heart to her completely

Oh we sang and we danced, there she left me entranced
And I thought that we never would part
But it was never to be for her eyes could not see
That another had captured her heart

With a tear in my eye, oh she bade me goodbye
Oh my love will stay with you forever
And when the day dawns my love she'll be gone
For her hand it is pledged to another

She once told me she cared for the love that we shared
And she swore that she'd ne'er let me down
But my heart it is broken, like promises
lie in pieces all scattered around

I'd have loved her forever, if we'd been together
I'd have given her all that I can
She's have been my dear sweetheart that I'd call my own
But she's pledged to another her hand
