THOU ART FAIR

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead

White-hued flesh of tender sinews
Silver hair upon thy brow
Lithesome limbs upon thy body
This is thou before me, now
Thou art fair, my love
Do you care
Thou art there
Silver hair
Art thou bare

Tender memories of your footsteps
As they padded close to mine
Tender mem'ries of your lips, dear
As they taste of mel and wine
Thou art fair, my love
Maidenhair
Leave an heir
Earthenware
Thou art bare
