words: Peggy Seeger and Irene Scott
© 1992 Peggy Seeger (1)

I used to think that love was blind,
But love can surely see -
Among the flowers of the field
I found one for me,
I found one for me ...

Chorus: Come and walk in Richmond Park,
Come and walk in town -
Come sit on Primrose Hill
And watch the sun go down,
Watch the sun go down.

The turtle dove longs for a mate,
Hear her mournful cry -
Long before I saw your face
I dreamed of you and I,
Dreamed of you and I ... (chorus)

Tomorrow’s sky is overhead,
Moon and stars combine -
Will you come and share my bed
And join your life with mine,
Join your life with mine? (chorus)

Every day begins anew
With the rising of the sun;
Every time I look at you
Love has just begun,
Love has just begun ... (chorus)
