Well there she goes again without her coat on
She’ll catch her death of cold racing out on those roads
But she’s riding the waves stop her if you could
So looking from this window i wonder if i should

Now father he’s sobered caught sight of her lad
Though he can’t see that she’s gifted the good lord
Put youth in her hand
Now we sit at the table we remembered how we met
That nervy young tradesman right at my doorstep

Now see I’m not wearing no frown but the years they add up in these old mining towns

Daughter dearest she comes back way past her time
And father he’s stayed up to give her a piece , a piece of his mind
Now theres shouting down stairs he’s caught sight of that ring
She’s to young to regret that little wedding bell dream

And those bells they echoed down the streets which she grew
I stood looking out me and her father we knew
That she’ll grow old in the town which she grew

So see she’s not wearing no frown but those years they’ll add up in these old mining towns
