Book/Printed Material Miller's song. H. De Marsan, Publisher, 38 & 60 Chatham Street, N. Y. [c. 1860]
As sung by Fred Shaw.
Oh, don't you remember, Lilly dear,
The mill by the old brook-side,
Where oft we went, in summer time,
To view the rippling tide;
And the miller with his slouchy hat,
And his eyes of mildest grey,
Ploding along in his dirty work,
And singing the live long day.
Chorus: Ulea, Ulea, Ulea,
Singing the Miller's song; Repeat.
Oh, Lilly, the mill is torn away,
And a factory, dark and drear,
Raises its smoke, oe'r the clear blue sky,
And dims the atmosphere;
The only time for pleasure now,
Is the sabbath all day long,
And what brings back the olden time,
Is the good old, Miller's song?
Chorus: Ulea, Ulea, Ulea, c.
Oh, Lilly, the Miller's dead and gone,
In the old church-yard he's laid,
And the poor old dog that used to growl,
As round the mill we played;
He followed in the funeral train,
As the village round did throng,
He died upon his master's grave,
As they sang the Miller's song
Chorus: Ulea, Ulea, Ulea, c.
