Lyrics & Music: Maureen S. O'Brien
Inspired by: Robin Hood, 1991 (P Bergin, Uma Thurman)
I will not wed for gold; I will not wed for land; He makes the maytrees blossom, so I will take his hand. CH: Oh, a-maying I will go, and a-maying I will go Go tell the maidens, oh, that a-maying I will go And a-maying I will go. I will not wed for treaties, For safety, peace, and rest; But I will wed the man who makes the bees buzz in my breast. (CH) I will not be a symbol; I will not play a part; I'll go a-maying when he brings the springtime to my heart. (CH) Oh, my father won't agree And my mother thinks it wrong, But I will wed my own true love and that before too long. (CH)
