HER SHOWED OI THE WAY
 
div
 
Oi were down in the meadow a-makin' zum hay,
When first oi see'd Marj'ry one fine zummer day.
An' her did look a picter a-tossin' (on) it up,
So I poured out some cider and gived her a sup.
Oi said, 'Let you and me thro' the fields to take a roam,
Oi don't know where 'e lives or oi'd walk with thee home.'

Chorus: And her showed oi the way, Her showed oi the way.
When oi got to her home, oi thought oi'd have to stay
Oi said 'Alas alack
Oi don't know the road back,'
An' her showed oi the way. Her showed oi the way!


Us walked out together a lot arter that,
Us didn't say much, cut (bus. cuddling) 'twere nice for all that.
An' after a bit, when us come to a stile,
We’' sit there, an' rest, 'olding hands for a while.
An' once oi said, 'Marj'ry! how pretty thee bist;
If oi knowed how to do it, oi'd give thee a kiss.

Chorus: And her showed oi the way.Her showed oi the way.
For oi was that shy, oi'd got nothin' to say.
Her pulled my face to her'n (and)
Took oi some time to learn,
But her showed oi the way.Her showed oi the way.


(Spoken:-)And then us got married! E' and
After the weddin' they did have some fun
'Cos Marj'ry an' me wuz med into one.
There was cider and speeches, and the cake it were fine,
An' they kep' up the dancing till very near nine.
An' when 'twas all over, oi felt that theer shy,
Oi didn't know how to start saying 'good-bye.'

Chorus: But her showed oi the way. Her showed oi the way.
So happy oi felt oi'd a stopped theer till next day,
But her ketched hold't my arm,
And to our little farm,
Her showed oi the way.Her showed oi the way.
