about

It Was Beautiful
(G. Gothard)

lyrics

A group of men sat ‘round the fire, telling old tales ’til the midnight hour
Along came a stumbling little girl, dancing around with a smile
Her ma came running fast in her wake, sorry kind sirs for that headache
The group of men then a plea did make - please don’t take her away
CHORUS
We thought it was beautiful - oh, oh
We thought it was beautiful - oh, oh
We thought it was beautiful

Walking through an ancient space, young lads say what is this place?
Fading light through windows cold, the whole thing seems too old
But a woman there, she seems so wise, with a nice young face and lovin’ brown eyes
Lads don’t like the ancient place - but she goes there everyday
CHORUS
She thinks it is beautiful - oh, oh
She thinks it is beautiful - oh
She thinks it is beautiful - oh, oh
She thinks it is beautiful - oh - hey!

Climbing down from the mountains high, Danny’s father gave a tired sigh
Well me boy, that’s it I’m done, sweating all day in the sun
The mountain’s never worth the pain, climbing all day and with what gain?
His little son then a sound did make - and Danny he did say
CHORUS
I thought it was beautiful - oh, oh
I thought it was beautiful - oh, oh
I thought it was beautiful - oh
I thought it was beautiful - oh
I thought it was beautiful
