Track Name: Log Driver's Waltz
If you ask any girl from the parish around,
What pleases her most from her head to her toes;
She'll say, "I'm not sure that it's business of yours,
But I do like to waltz with that log driver."

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That's where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It's birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver's waltz pleases girls completely.

When the drive's nearly over, she likes to go down
And watch all the lads as they work on the river;
I know that come evening they'll be in the town,
They will all like to waltz with the log driver.

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That's where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It's birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver's waltz pleases girls completely.

To please both her parents she has to give way,
And dance with the doctors and the merchants and lawyers;
Their manners are fine, but their feet are of clay,
And none with that style of my log driver.

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That's where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It's birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver's waltz pleases girls completely.

Now she's had her chances with all sorts of men,
But none as so fine as that lad on the river;
So when the drive's over, if he asks her again,
She thinks that she'll marry that log driver.

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That's where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It's birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver's waltz pleases girls completely.

Birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver's waltz pleases girls completely.
