Swifts, Swains And Leafy Lanes

This song is by Amazing Blondel and appears on the album Fantasia Lindum (1971).

Gladwin


Chorus:
Swifts and swains, leafy lanes,
This county brings them near,
As a lover to his lass
And a woodsman to his deer.
Swifts and swains, leafy lanes,
This county brings them near,
Resplendent in its finery
Of verdant Lincolnshire.

Thoughts of field and pasture, enrapture
And capture fair memories of my youth.
Days of love and laughter, yet laughter, thereafter
Allayed to leave but truth

Chorus

Scenes of church and priory inspire me
And fire me to dwell on times gone by.
Hours of merry making when pleasures were for taking
How can they all die now

Chorus

The pain of my forlorn love has been
This countryside of Lincoln Green

Evetide warblers trilling, with dulcet tones instilling,
Ideas which weren't denied.
Yet brief was your bold passion
For one man was not fashion
So love is cast aside.

Chorus
