Roseville Fair
Written by Bill Staines



Chords


Song

1.

Oh, the night was clear, and the stars were shinin',
And the moon came up, so quiet in the sky,
And all the people gathered 'round, while the band was a-tunin',
I can hear them now, playin' "Comin' Through the Rye".

2.

She was dressed in blue, and she looked so lovely,
Just a gentle flower, of a small town girl,
Then he took her hand, and they danced to the music,
With a single smile she became his world.

chorus 1:

And they danced all night, to the fiddle and the banjo,
Their driftin' tunes, seemed to fill the air,
So long ago, but they still remember,
When they fell in love, at the Roseville Fair.

3.

Now they courted well, and they courted dearly,
They'd rock for hours, in the front porch chair,
Then a year went by, from the time that he met her,
And he made her his, at the Roseville Fair.

chorus 1:

instrumental solo:

chorus 2:

So here's a song, for all of the lovers,
And here's a tune, that you can share,
May you dance all night, to the fiddle and the banjo,
The way they did, at the Roseville Fair.

coda:

The way they did, at the Roseville Fair.
