The Roseville Fair

h the night was clear and the stars were shining
And the moon came up so quiet in the sky
All the people gathered ’round and the band was a tuning
I can hear them now playing come through the rye

You were dressed in blue and you looked so lovely
Just a gentle flower of a small town girl
You took my hand and we stepped to the music
With a single smile you became my world

And we danced all night to the fiddle and the banjo
Thier drifting tunes seemed to fill the air
So long ago but I still remember
When we fell in love at the Roseville fair

Now we courted well and we courted dearly
And we’d rock for hours on the front porch chair
Then a year went by from the time that I met you
And I made you mine at the Roseville fair

So here’s a song for all of the lovers
And here’s a tune that they can share
May they dance all night to the fiddle and the banjo
The way we did at the Roseville fair
