Fare thee well
My own true love
Farewell for a while
I’m going away
But I’ll be back
Though I go 10,000 miles

10,000 miles
My own true love
10,000 miles or more
The rocks may melt
And the seas may burn
If I should not return

Oh don’t you see
That lonesome dove
Sitting on an ivy tree
She’s weeping for
Her own true love
As I shall weep for mine

Oh come ye back
My own true love
And stay a while with me
If I had a friend
All on this earth

You’ve been a friend to me….

  • David, what time is it where you are? It’s like 4 am here and I am always up half the night and you are always on here too, just wondering if you were also a night owl. LOL
    Oh and thanks David.
