White Dress
Fairport Convention Lyrics

Feel how the wind blows, December despair
Bring me a ribbon to tie up my hair
I'll be your bride, go where you go
All of my life, you'll be my beau

Kiss me and I might
Put on the white dress
If you'll take me dancing tonight

The night's in your face, sky's in your eyes
The day's in my arms when you're by my side
Whenever you're weary, I'll sing you a song
Whenever you're lonely, I'll show you, you're wrong

Kiss me and I might
Put on the white dress
If you'll take me dancing tonight

Come from the window, let's climb the stairs
All of my sorrows are none of your cares
While life is in us, let's love all we can
I'll be your woman if you'll be my man

Kiss me and I might
Put on the white dress
If you'll take me dancing tonight

I don't think I've ever heard her sing a note that didn't pierce my heart.


Same here.

I was so fortunate to see Fairport in the 70s at the Sanders Theater in Cambridge, MA. Sandy was apparently ill at the time as she had to take a break during the show. Fairport was one of my favorite groups when Sandy Denny was with them. This song is amazingly beautiful. She is missed - RIP Sandy Denny. Thank you for the video,


The greatest died young! R.ip Sandy denny,you're a angel!

Jos van der Steen

Unforgettable Sandy, angelic woman, you make a grown man cry - to coin a phrase. You deserved so much more inner peace and joy for how much inner peace and joy you gave to all those who have been touched deeply and indelibly by your voice.

You put that absolutely right, Jos! Even your words bring a tear to my eyes . . .

Joanne Beauchamp

There aren’t many singers today (if any) who can sing with the depth and emotion of Sandy...

Anthony Marando

Thank you for putting this together. I love them so much.

. . . you're welcome - i'd rather see the "lws" footage in its entirety (i'm sure it IS OUT THERE somewhere).


Sandy could bring a tear to a prosthetic eye - truly sumptuous vocals. To think that Swarbs wrote a gentle, bucolic song like this too. Amazing!!
