DOWN, DOWN , DOWN IN DEVONSHIRE (George A. Stevens) Florrie Forde - 1909 Down in Devonshire there's a farm In a rural country glade There a tourist spent his holidays Then went back and told of jolly days There with a rural maid "She has promised that she'll be mine" He proudly said as he tossed his head "She's a dairy maid, extra fine And, oh, she loves her Fred" Down, down, down in Devonshire I met Polly Oh, you should spot her, I'm proud I've got her Because she's a real good Devonshire lass, oh, she's a dream I'm in Heaven when I'm in Devon With my bit of Devonshire cream Down in Devonshire to that farm In a week or two there went Fred's friend, Joe, who looked for Polly, too Found that she was really jolly, too And what a time he spent Said to Freddie when home he got "The lass I know and I love her so We've decided to tie the knot For, oh, she loves her Joe" Down, down, down in Devonshire I met Polly Oh, you should spot her, I'm proud I've got her Because she's a real good Devonshire lass, oh, she's a dream I'm in Heaven when I'm in Devon With my bit of Devonshire cream Fred was really annoyed at that And he said, "She's true to me" They decided both to go along Strange to say, both Fred and Joe were wrong When they got there to see Polly's wedding was taking place And down the aisle full of nods and smiles A yokel said, with a laughing face "My word, she loves her Giles" Down, down, down in Devonshire I met Polly Oh, you should spot her, I'm proud I've got her Because she's a real good Devonshire lass, oh, she's a dream I'm in Heaven when I'm in Devon With my bit of Devonshire cream (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2014)
