The Auld Farmer Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords By Seamus Moore

The Auld Farmer Lyrics
There was an old farmer he sat on a rock.
He thought all the wee boys to play with their
Toys in the meadows and over the moors
Pay me nice lady, she looked like
 
A very nice lady sure she walked like a dog.
She thought she'd invented a new kind of
Educate her children a new way to write
But the old farmer's son was out shovelling
 
Dirt from the farmyard into the bire
The dirty old farmer was pulling his
Horse from the stable to go on a hunt
While the old farmer's wife was there powering
 
Her sweet violets, sweeter than the roses.
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets.

Now the old farmers daughter stood by his side
She said to herself I feel like a
Good walk by the river and over the hill
She'll just take a candle to give her a
 
Light if it darkens, she'll need a whole lot of luck
If she meets with the farm hand and he wants
Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets.

Now the farmer and his young lad is just twenty six
He's a dirty old habit of sucking at
Straws and matches, and he lives in fear
Where ever he goes they all think he's
Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses
 
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets
Covered all over from head to toe
Covered all over with sweet violets
