The Foggy Dew

This song is by Wolfe Tones and appears on the album The Foggy Dew (1965) and on the compilation album 25th Anniversary (1989).

O come all you young and fair
And you who are in love
I'll tell to you the many joys it brings
From your first to your last
Love is bitter sweet and sad
It's gentle, it is strong, it is kind

And as we ramble by day
Through this lonely life we stray,
It's sweeter to have loved along the way
Like the dew upon the Rose
And the fairy winds that blows
As we wonder through life's misty foggy dew

Like the stream that's rushing wild
And the mischief of the child
And the gentle waters slowly drifting by
Love is deeper than the seas
And far taller than the trees
It's brighter than the stars up in the sky

And as we ramble by day
Through this lonely life we stray,
It's sweeter to have loved along the way
Like the dew upon the Rose
And the fairy winds that blows
As we wonder through life's misty foggy dew

Sometimes love I have lost
And sometimes I have found
Are better to have loved than none at all
That same stream that's rushing wild
And the mischief of the child
And the gentle waters slowly drifting by

And as we ramble by day
Through this lonely life we stray,
It's sweeter to have loved along the way
Like the dew upon the Rose
And the fairy winds that blows
As we wonder through life's misty foggy dew
