New Year's Carol  

(trad. arr. Waterson: Carthy)

Levy Dew sing Levy Dew, the water and the wine,
Seven bright gold wires and the trumpets doth shine

Here comes the maiden with gold on her toe;
Open the West gate and let the Old Year go.

Levy Dew sing Levy Dew, the water and the wine,
Seven bright gold wires and the trumpets doth shine

Here comes the maiden with gold on her shoe;
Open the South gate and let the New Year through.

Levy Dew sing Levy Dew, the water and the wine,
Seven bright gold wires and the trumpets doth shine

Here comes the maiden with gold on her chin;
Open the East gate and let the New Year in.

Levy Dew sing Levy Dew, the water and the wine,
Seven bright gold wires and the trumpets doth shine

Here comes the maiden with gold in her eye;
Open the North gate and let the Old Year by.

Levy Dew sing Levy Dew, the water and the wine,
Seven bright gold wires and the trumpets doth shine
