lyrics

Loyalty and Love
(Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Frederick McKinnon)

I’VE SURVIVED GREAT BATTLES
AND FOUGHT THE RAGING SEA
BUT NEVER GAVE MY HEART
TO A LASS SO DEAR TO ME.

AT THIS TIME IN MY LIFE
I SHOULD BE A MARRIED MAN
I WOULD LIKE A WIFE AND CHILDREN
WILL SHE GIVE ME HER HAND?

IN A WORLD OF CHANGING FORTUNE
TWO THINGS DO ENDURE
LOYALTY AND LOVE
LOYALTY AND LOVE

I’LL PLEDGE MY HEART FOREVER
OF THAT I CAN BE SURE
LOYALTY AND LOVE
LOYALTY AND LOVE

I’VE NOT BEEN VERSED IN ROMANCE
WILL I KNOW WHAT TO SAY?
HOW CAN I LET HER KNOW
I CAN SEE OUR WEDDING DAY?

(ELIZABETH enters and approaches JAMES.)
ELIZABETH
A little early for dinner, Mr. Cook. Father said you were in this morning to have a talk with him. Will you have your usual ale?

JAMES
No thank you, Miss Batts. Hot tea will be fine.

I ONCE KNEW LITTLE SWEET BETH
AS ONLY A DARLING CHILD
BUT NOW SHE’S A WOMAN
TODAY MY HEART’S BEGUILED

I’VE NOT BEEN VERSED IN ROMANCE
BUT I WILL KNOW WHAT TO SAY
AND I MUST LET HER KNOW
I CAN SEE OUR WEDDING DAY

I’LL PLEDGE MY HEART FOREVER
OF THAT I CAN BE SURE
LOYALTY AND LOVE
LOYALTY AND LOVE
