Lyrics

The Old Elora Mill
________________________________________

Seems like just yesterday
When spring was warm and dry
The sky was bluer than the blue in your eyes
You were a pretty rose a-bloomin'
And I a whippoorwill
When we fell in love by the Old Elora Mill

Some say love is bittersweet
Some say love is kind
I remember how love came to me that day

You were a pretty rose a-bloomin'
And I a whippoorwill
When we fell in love by the Old Elora Mill

The old mill wheel turned so proudly
By the banks of the Elora Gorge
Where once the mighty Grand River roared
Many a young man came wanderin'
With his sweet lady fair
And in no time you and I were there

Some say love is bittersweet
Some say love is kind
I remember how love came to me that day

You were a pretty rose a-bloomin'
And I a whippoorwill
When we fell in love by the Old Elora Mill

I bought a flute down on Mill Street
And we sat by the river
Rob and Annie, the flute, and you and I
Later on we built a fire
And sang ourselves some songs
Isn't music where the heart belongs

Some say love is bittersweet
Some say love is kind
I remember how love came to me that day

You were a pretty rose a-bloomin'
And I a whippoorwill
When we fell in love by the Old Elora Mill
