Lyrics

Oh, the night was clear and stars were shinin'
And the moon rose quiet in the sky
And the people gathered round as the band were tunin'
I can hear them now, 'Comin' Through The Rye'

She was dressed in blue and she looked so lovely
Just a gentle flower of a small town girl
And he took her by the hand and they danced to the music
With a simple smile she became his girl

And they danced all night to the fiddle and the banjo
Drifting tunes filled the air
So long ago now but I still remember
When we fell in love at the Roseville Fair

And they courted well and they courted dearly
Till the very next year at that self-same fair
When she caught him holding hands with some floozy
And she smashed his skull with a rosewood chair

And his head went clean through the middle of the banjo
She left them both well beyond repair
And the old fox said, "That's the way to treat a banjo"
And we danced all night at the Roseville Fair

And we couldn't believe the improvement in the music
Drifting tunes filled the air
And the old fox said, "Yip, that's the way to treat a banjo"
And we danced all night at the Roseville Fair
Yes, we danced all night at the Roseville Fair
