lyrics

a young gentleman came riding past
on a snow blue winter's day
he asked to drink by our fire
and i was pleased to let him stay
he drank there quietly for awhile
and then he turned and said to me

your eyes are green like summer grass
your lips are red like a fresh like a fresh cut rose
your hair is soft like an irish stream
and your voice is filled with sweet beauty

and the last words i heard him say
were "i shall return for you, my love, on christmas day"

and the night will come
but i won't sleep as i watch the stars that lead him
i cannot place where he is
but still my heart goes with him
i'm saving all my sunday clothes
for the day that i'll be leaving

my father knows
my sister knows
and my friends, they're happy for me
the priest he says
"you should thank god for the blessing of such beauty"

and the last words i heard him say
were "i shall return for you, my love, on christmas day"

and the last words i heard him say
were the last words i ever heard him say
"i shall return for you, my love, on christmas day"
