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.
And 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.
