An old favourite - American number the lyrics of which speak for themselves. Our only cheery number to be honest :-)


Roseville Fair.

The night was clear, the stars were shining
the moon came out, bright in the sky
people gathered round, the band were tuning
I can here them now, playing coming through the rye
She was dressed in blue, she looked so lovely
simple flowers a small town girl
He took her by the hand, they danced to the music
with a simple smile, she became his girl

And they danced all night, to the fiddle and the banjo
tunes were churning through the air
so long ago now, I can still remember
how they fell in love, at the Roseville Fair.

Well they courted well, they courted dearly
rocked for hours in the front porch chair
and a year went by from the time he met her
and they made their vows at the Roseville Fair


Here's a song for you lovers
here's a tune you all know well
and may you dance to the fiddle and the banjo
the way they did at the roseville fair
