Log Driver's Waltz

Sing Along!

The Log Driver's Waltz

Wade Hemsworth

 

If you ask any girl from the parish around

What pleases her most from her head to her toes

She'll say I'm not sure that it's business of yours

But I do like to waltz with a log driver

[Chorus]

For he goes birling down and down white water

That's where the log driver learns to step lightly

Yes, birling down and down white water

The log driver's waltz pleases girls completely

 

 

When the drive's nearly over I like to go down

And watch all the lads as they work on the river

I know that come evening they'll be in the town

And we all like to waltz with the log driver

 

[Chorus]

 

To please both my parents, I've had to give way

And dance with the doctors and merchants and lawyers

Their manners are fine, but their feet are of clay

And there's none with the style of my log driver

 

[Chorus]

Now I've had my chances with all sorts of men

But none as so fine as my lad on the river

 So when the drive's over, if he asks me again

I think I will marry my log driver

[Chorus]

 

For he goes birling down and down white water

That's where the log driver learns to step lightly

Yes, birling down and down white water

The log driver's waltz pleases girls completely

Birling down and down white water

The log driver's waltz pleases girls completely
