  • When The Bees Are In The Hive - Bill Monroe
  • (Bryan/Mills)
  • By the mill stream sits the Miller's pretty daughter
  • Her cheeks are like the first red rose of June
  • Her sweet voice sounds just like the rippling water
  • As so tenderly she hums an old love tune
  • But soon her song of joy has turned to sorrow
  • Her sweetheart now has come to say goodbye
  • She thinks of a sad and lonely morrow
  • And he hugs her as she murmers with a sigh
  • When the bees are in the hive and the honey in the comb
  • And the golden sunlight bends to kiss the dew
  • While the old mill wheel turns 'round I love you Mary
  • And when the bees are in the hive I'll come to you
  • By the old mill sits the lonely maid repining
  • And her face was like the spring rose far away
  • While she looked down in the silver waters shining
  • And she sees her golden locks are dimmed with grey
  • Long years she's waited there for his returning
  • All in vain she's thinking he'll come back someday
  • For the lamp of hope still in her heart is burning
  • As the old mill wheel turns 'round it seems to say
