JimJim and the Fatboys
by Bill Staines
O the night was clear and the stars were shining
And the moon came up, so quiet in the sky
And the people gathered ’round and the band was a-tuning
I can hear them now playin “Comin’ thru the Rye”
You were dressed in blue and you looked so lovely
Just a gentle flower of a small town girl
You took my hand and we stepped to the music
And with a single smile you became my world. Chorus
And we danced all night to the fiddle and the banjo
Their drifting tunes seemed to fill the air
So long ago, but I still remember
When we fell in love at the Roseville Fair.
Now we courted well and we courted dearly
And we’d rock for hours in the front porch chair
Then a year went by from the time that I met you
And I made you mine at the Roseville Fair. Chorus
So here’s a song for all the lovers
And here’s a tune that they can share
May they dance all night to the fiddle and the banjo
The way we did at the Roseville Fair.
