THE FOGGY, FOGGY DEW (aka THE FOGGY DEW**) (Traditional 18th Century English) lso recorded by: Dick Curless; Alfred Deller; Tom Paxton; Shirley Collins; Charles River Valley Boys; Martin Carthy; The Brass Pennies; Carl Sandburg; Tim O'Brien; Greg Brown; Ian Robb; Doug Wallin; Ewan MacColl: .....and many others. When I was a bachelor, I lived all alone I worked at the weaver's trade And the only, only thing I ever did that was wrong Was to woo a fair young maid I wooed her in the wintertime Part of the summer, too And the only, only thing I ever did that was wrong Was to keep her from the foggy, foggy dew One night she knelt close by my side When I was fast asleep She threw her arms around my neck And she began to weep She wept, she cried, she tore her hair Ah, me! What could I do? So all night long I held her in my arms Just to keep her from the foggy foggy dew Again I am a bachelor, I live with my son We work at the weaver's trade And every single time I look into his eyes He reminds me of that fair young maid He reminds me of the wintertime Part of the summer, too And the many, many times that I held her in my arms Just to keep her from the foggy, foggy, dew **Not to be confused with the 1916 Irish song, "The Foggy Dew" (Contributed by Shelley Botka - November 2007)
