I am looking for a song that I think is an Irish ballad but am not sure. It's chorus is "I'll give you a daisy a day dear. Give you a daisy a day. I'll love you until the rivers run still and the four winds we know blow away." If anyone knows the title to the song and where I might be able to find the complete lyrics I would appreciate it! Thanks

This is a song called "A Daisy A Day" written by a guy named Jud Strunk who also recorded it in 1973. Strunk, an occasional guest on the TV show "Laugh In," died in a plane crash in 1981.

A Daisy A Day

He remembers the first time he met her
He remembers the first thing she said
He remembers the first time he held her
And the night that she came to his bed
He remembers her sweet way of sayin'
Honey has somethin' gone wrong?
He remembers the fun and the teasin'
And the reason he wrote her this song

I'll give you a daisy a day, dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the river runs still
And the four winds we know blow away

They would walk down the street in the evenin'
And for years I would see them go by
And their love that was more than the clothes that they wore
Could be seen in the gleam of their eyes
As a kid they would take me for candy
And I loved to go taggin' along
We'd hold hands as we walked to the corner
And the old man would sing her his song

I'll give you a daisy a day, dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the river runs still
And the four winds we know blow away

Now he walks down the street in the evenin'
And he stops by the old candy store
And I somehow believe he's believin'
He's holdin' her hand like before
For he feels all her love walkin' with him
And he smiles at the things she might say
Then the old man walks up to the hilltop
And gives her a daisy a day

I'll give you a daisy a day, dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the river runs still
And the four winds we know blow away
