lyrics

Bramblefoot 2.45 Stuart Forester

A song of nature and a celebration of the bountiful seasons. Bramblefoot is the life, the industry in the undergrowth, the bringer and sustainer. Melodeon by Jack Burnaby.

Come del a derry o hear the bluebells ringing, May dew on the willow, daisies in the meadow
Down dale in the valley o a sunny song he’s singing, come now Bramblefoot fears not time nor shadow

Sunlight on the laurel moonlight on the hazel, songbird on the berry, food is on the table

Old man Bramblefoot older than the mountains, come bring a happy tune clearer than the fountain
Down where the Ramson grows beasties in the burrows, come now Bramblefoot seed is in the furrows

Sunlight on the laurel moonlight on the hazel, songbird on the berry babies in the cradle

Step light Bramblefoot a rustle in the rushes, fresh like the morning silver river running
Sing a song a happy song ever may you wander, come long Bramblefoot the harvest and the giver

Sunlight on the laurel moonlight on the hazel, songbird on the berry, food is on the table
