Whiskey Bards - Tully Dew lyrics

chorus 1
Sweet Tully Dew (Tully Moore), my sweet Tully Dew
What I wouldn't give for one [more] night with you
Oh Sweet Tully Dew (Tully Moore), my sweet Tully Dew
Would you spend one more night, in my arms Tully Dew

The fairest memories of my younger days
All revolve 'round the presence of a pretty young maid
Her father, Mr. Moore, the town's brewer was he
And his lovely young daughter, he named her Tully

Her skin shone golden like wheat in the field
And her eyes purest green as any emerald could yield
From her lips flowed freely love's sweetest brew
As fresh as the morning, we called her Tully Dew

chorus 1

One fine spring evening, I found in my arms
A smiling, sweet Tully, and I drank in her charms
We danced for hours, like clouds in the sky
Not a team of horses she from my arms could pry

The glow from her hair shone like the sun
As I tasted her lips I knew she was the one
From the base of her feet to her golden crown
In her love I would swim 'till I might drown

chorus 2
Sweet Tully Dew (Tully Moore), my sweet Tully Dew
From your lips flowed sweet honey, when e're I kissed you
Sweet Tully Dew (Tully Moore), my sweet Tully Dew
Just one taste from your lips and Heaven I knew

bridge
As years passed us by our love seemed to wane
And we yearned for the newness of our younger days
For a time we parted and misery I knew
Bereft of the company of sweet Tully Dew

One dark fateful eve, she came back to me
We laughed and smiled together, so happy and carefree
As we walked the cliffs o'er the bountiful sea
For the last time I tasted the lips of Tully

For as we stood held in each other's arms
A mighty gust of wind stole 'way her charms
She fell so slowly and on the rocks met her end
Now forever I'll wander, a lonely, broken man
