Lyricist:    Composer:


Fare you well, my own true love,
And farewell for a while
I'm going away, but I'll be back
If I go ten thousand miles

Ten thousand miles, my own true love
Ten thousand miles or more
And the rocks may melt and the seas may burn
If I no more return

Oh don't you see that lonesome dove
Sitting on yon ivy tree,
She's weeping for her own true love
Just as I shall weep for mine.


Oh come back my own true love
And stay a while with me
For if I had a friend all on this earth,
You've been a friend to me.
