Lyrics

Fare thee well my own true love
And farewell for awhile
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 should not return

Oh, don't you see that lonesome dove
Sitting on an 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 awhile with me
For if I had a friend all on this earth
You've been a friend to me

And fare thee well my own true love
And farewell for awhile
I'm going away, but I'll be back
If I go ten thousand miles

Writer(s): . TRADITIONAL, JIM MORAY, STORRS WILLIS RICHARD
