H 06 Log Driver's Waltz 
                                Wade Hemsworth

If you ask any girl in the parish around
What pleases her most from her head to her toes
She'll say "I'm not sure that it's business of yours
But I do love to waltz with a log driver."

   For he goes birling down the down-white water
   That's how a log driver learns to step lightly, and
   Burling down the down-white water
   A log driver's waltz pleases girls completely

When the drive's nearly over I like to go down
And watch all the lads as they work on the river
I know that come evening they'll be in the town
And we all love to waltz with a log driver

To please both my parents I've had to give way
And dance with the doctors and merchants and lawyers
Their manners are fine but their feet are of clay
For there's none with the style of my log driver

Now I've had my chances with all sorts of men
But none is so fine as my lad on the river
So when the drive's over if he asks me again
I think I will marry my log driver
