Farewell 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. 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 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.
