Blackmore's Night - Peasant's Promise Lyrics




One warm summer night
He rode into sight
On a wild mare that was so perfectly white
I'd dreamed he'd return
and I was right
Wishes can come true when you wish with all your might...

One look in his eyes
I had realized
His life was so simple he had no disguise
He lived day to day, no promise he would stay
But in these few words he stole my heart away

He said:
"My life's not to lead
Through power or greed
I am but a poor man
when I'm cut I bleed
A more humble man you never will meet
And here is my heart for only you to keep..."

In the shade of the willow tree
My poor peasant promised to me

No scholarly thoughts, he couldn't pay high costs
And sometimes it feels like he's totally lost
But he said this true and he said it loud
"I promise you my heart with this solemn vow..."

One warm summer night
He rode out of sight
On a wild mare that was so perfectly white
I'd dreamed he'd return and I was right
Wishes can come true when you wish with all your might...

In the shade of the willow tree
My poor peasant promised to me.

In the shade of the willow tree
My poor peasant promised to me.

    My song to the father of my my baby who is an alcoholic but he's the most humble man i have ever met. I cant be with him because of his alcoholism but have a son by him was my wish. Hes an amazing dad but he wont get help. Hes an amazing humble man ❤ i wont find another like him but i decided to just leave our love for eachother in out hearts. When she says wishes can co.e true in the songs it reminds me of my baby boy. This song is kinda story of our love

    Because the sixties taught music lovers that 3 guitars + a drummer is the norm...
