That's Somerset

That's Somerset

(Tolchard Evans)


New Mayfair Dance Orchestra

When you see over you
A sky that's always blue
That's Somerset, that's Somerset

Somewhere the river flows
And apple blossom grows
That's Somerset, that's Somerset

Where honeysuckle blooms
The countryside perfume
You long in vain to walk again
That little winding lane

If ever you would find
And leave the world behind
That's Somerset, that's Somerset
