the hexhamshire lass lyrics – fairport convention

away with the buff and the blue
and away with the cap and feather
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
off with the . . . and over the moss and the mire
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
her father loves her well, her mother loves her dearer
i love them better than them both but, man, i can’t get near her
off with the . . . and over the moss and the mire
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
if only i could be lying there aside her
while i must bide here, my arms’ll be denied her
off with the . . . and over the moss and the mire
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
her skin is like the silk and her hair is like the silver
her br**sts are deep and cool, they’ll warm when i get near her
off with the . . . and over the moss and the mire
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
ah, this love of mine, oh, this love, i am weary
sleep i can’t get none for thinking of my dearie
off with the . . . and over the moss and the mire
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
away with the? gilded? shield and away with the cap and feather
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
away with the buff and the blue
away with the cap and feather
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
off with the . . . and over the moss and the mire
i want to see my l*ss who lives in hexhamshire
