Kate Rusby - Night Visiting Song

rate me

I must away love, no longer tarry,

This roaring tempest I have to cross

I must be guided without a fall

Into the arms I love the best.

And when he came up to his true-love's dwelling

He's knelt down gently upon the stone

And through the window he's whispered soft

Is my true-lover within at home?

She's raised her up from off her pillow

She's raised her up from off her bed

And through the window she's whispered soft

Who's that disturbeth my own night's rest?

Wake up, wake up, love, it's your own true-love

Wake up, wake up, love, and let me in.

Oh how the wind blows and how it rains,

Oh I am wet, love, unto the skin.

She's raised her up from off her pillow

She's raised her up and let him in.

They were locked in each other's arms

Until the long night was past and o'er.

And when the long night was passed and o'er

Oh when the dawn clouds *they* did divide.

He's leaned down gently and kissed her soft.

He's saddled up and away did ride.

He mounted up on his horse and away did ride.

He's mounted up on his horse and away did ride
