SHE'S A LASSIE FROM LANCASHIRE (C.W. Murphy / Dan Lipton / John Neat) Florrie Forde - 1907 Walter Miller - 1907 Ella Retford - 1908 >From a dear little Lancashire town A boy had sailed, away Across the briny spray To toil in U. S. A. When American girls gathered round And sought his company He'd say, "There's only one girl for me" She's a lassie from Lancashire Just a lassie from Lancashire She's the lassie that I love dear Oh, so dear! Though she dresses in clogs and shawl She's the prettiest of them all None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah My lass from Lancashire Night and day of his lassie he'd dream And under love's sweet spell He'd hear the factory bell A sound he knew so well Home from work he would walk once again And though in reverie He'd say, "There's only one girl for me" She's a lassie from Lancashire Just a lassie from Lancashire She's the lassie that I love dear Oh, so dear! Though she dresses in clogs and shawl She's the prettiest of them all None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah My lass from Lancashire Day by day he kept plodding away And to his task he stuck Till by a stroke of luck A paying vein he struck As he wrote her to tell her that he Would shortly cross the sea He'd say, "There's only one girl for me" She's a lassie from Lancashire Just a lassie from Lancashire She's the lassie that I love dear Oh, so dear! Though she dresses in clogs and shawl She's the prettiest of them all None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah My lass from Lancashire ******************** As recorded by WALTER MILLER: >From a dear little Lancashire town A boy had sailed, away Across the briny spray To toil in U. S. A. When American girls gathered round And sought his company He'd say, "There's only one girl for me" She's a lassie from Lancashire Just a lassie from Lancashire She's the lassie that I love dear Oh, so dear! Though she dresses in clogs and shawl, She's the prettiest of them all None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah My lass from Lancashire Night and day of his lassie he'd dream And under love's sweet spell He'd hear the factory bell The sound he knew so well Home from work he would walk once again And though in reverie He'd say, "There's only one girl for me" She's a lassie from Lancashire Just a lassie from Lancashire She's the lassie that I love dear Oh, so dear! Though she dresses in clogs and shawl She's the prettiest of them all None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah My lass from Lancashire SPOKEN: Allo, allo, it's ten minutes ta two I suppose I'll have ta be gettin' back ta mill Come on, Sarah, come on, we'll never be in Oh, I say, by the way Have you ever seen our Sarah do a few steps on clogs? Eh, by gum, she's 'ot stuff, you should see 'er Come on, Sarah, just give us a few steps That's good, go on..... That's right, Sarah..... Go on, Lizzie, you might as well join in Oh, wish me Mother were alive to see 'er Go on, Sarah, ha-ha-ha-ha, that's right! (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2014)
