Fiddle and I 1905

This was my grandmother and grandfather's favorite song, they were together over 50 yrs, thanks for the fiddle tip-mk

Fiddle & I
By Mrs. Arthur Goodeve(sp?) and Fred F. Weatherly 1905

Verse:-) By road and river, country side and town
I roam forever, with my fiddle brown
Creeping under barns so gladly, when outside the winter howls
Playing sadly, playing madly, waking up the rats and owls
---
Chorus:
Ah! it was gay, night and day
Fair and cloudy weather
Fiddle and I, wandering by
Over the world together
Fiddle and I, wandering by
Over the world together
---
Verse:-) Down by the willow, summer night I lie
Flow’rs for my pillow, and for roof the sky
Playing all my heart remembers, old old songs from far away
Golden Junes and bleak Decembers rise around me as I play
Chorus:
---
Verse:-) On, on forever, till the journey ends
Who shall dissever Us two trusty friends?
Who can bring the past before me, make the future daily glow
Lift the clouds that darken o’er me, like my trusty Fiddle bow?
Chorus:
Repeat line to end:-) Fiddle and I, wandering by
Over the world tooogether!
