CATCH ME IF YOU CAN (Trad arr. F&I Bruce)

 

 

 

All early, early – all in the spring
Down in those meadows, oh so green
A fair pretty maiden I chanced to see

I asked her if she would walk with me

 

I asked her if she would walk with me
Down in those meadows, oh so green
I’d show her flowers and pretty things
And show her what she had never seen

 

As this young couple went strolling along
He sang to her some sweet pretty songs
He sang to her some sweet pretty songs
And soon he gained her favour

 

Now that you’ve had your way with me
And stolen away my sweet liberty
And stolen away my sweet liberty
Won’t you please tell me your name sir

 

CHORUS:

My name is catch me, That’s if you can
I’ll marry you when I return, I’ll marry you when I return
But I’m going across the wide ocean

 

When three long months had gone and past
And six long months he ne’er returned
And nine long months they were gone at last
And the child was born with no father

 

I’ll search this wide world around and around
And find that young man if I can
I’ll find that young man if I can
And I’ll catch him at his pleasure.
