about

Obsessions come in all shapes and sizes, and sooner or later they need to be dealt with! I suspect that a crashing chord sequence from my mate Martin Matthews sowed the seeds of this tune...

lyrics

Hey Miss Merrydown, ho Miss Merrydown
Hey Miss Merrydown, you please me
But I've been a long time in your service, now, it's time to set me free
I'm a foolish man, and I'm easily led
You've been knocking at an open door
It would not dismay me should I never meet you more

Hey Miss Merrydown, ho Miss Merrydown
Hey Miss Merrydown, you please me
But I will no longer pay the price you daily ask of me
You're a handsome lass, and you're very well bred
And I will miss you when you're gone
But now and then I'll take a glass for Auld Lang Syne

Hey Miss Merrydown, ho Miss Merrydown
Hey Miss Merrydown, let me be
You've been the ruin of many a finer figure of a man than me
I kissed you once by the kitchen door
And I never asked or offered more
But the fruit of the branch of the apple tree will always apples be

Hey Miss Merrydown, ho Miss Merrydown
Hey Miss Merrydown, you please me
But I've been a long time in your service, now, it's time to set me free
I'm a foolish man, and I'm easily led
You've been knocking at an open door
It would not dismay me should I never meet you more
