ROSES bloomed on every bush
And sweet was all the air
As I walked into Shelburne town
The morning of the Fair.

Roses bloomed on every bush
And soft was all the air
As I walked in and up and down
The morning of the Fair.

"Give me a rose, sweet maid," I said
"And I'll give you two for one."
I kissed her then and each cheek showed
A red rose of its own.

Roses bloomed on every bush
And sweet was all the air
As I walked out of Shelburne town
The evening of the Fair.

Roses bloomed on every bush,
The stars laughed in the sky.
I'd left my heart in Shelburne town --
Ah, what a fool was I!
