THE LOG DRIVER'S WALTZ  Time: 3/4  Tenor: D  Bass: C
- Wade Hemsworth

INTRO: 1,   1,   1,   1

              1       *             4        *
If you should ask any girl from the parish a-round
     57          *             *           1
What pleases her most from her head to her toes
       *        *                  4           *
She'll say: I'm not sure that it's business of yours
      57         *            1            *
But I do like to waltz with a log driver, (for he goes)


CHORUS:
            1       *       4          *
For he goes birling down, a-down white water
1                *          57             *
That's where the log driver learns to step lightly
     1       *       4          *
It's birling down, a down white water
  1           *             57   (*)  1
A log drivers waltz pleases girls com-pletely


         1              *       4          *
When the drive's nearly over, I like to go down
   57          *               *           1
To see all the lads while they work on the river
  *              *               4         *
I know that come evening they'll be in the town
       57          *            1            *
And we all want to waltz with a log driver


To please both my parents, I've had to give way
And dance with the doctors and merchants and lawyers
Their manners are fine, but their feet are of clay
For there's none with the style of a log driver


I've had my chances with all sorts of men
But none is so fine as my lad on the river
So when the drive's over, if he asks me again
I think I will marry my log driver

ENDING: CHORUS TWICE (add extra bar on "com-")
