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 a while with me For if I had a friend all on this earth, You’ve been a friend to me.
You can find the lyric of a specific song by typing the title and the singer's name.
"Fare Thee Well" (sometimes known as "The Turtle Dove") is an 18th-century English folk ballad, in which a lover bids farewell before setting off on a journey. The first published version of the song appeared in Roxburghe Ballads dated 1710; the lyrics were there given the title "The True Lover's Farewell".
"Fare Thee Well" shares several lyrics which parallel those of Robert Burns' "A Red, Red Rose".
I’m going away, but I’ll come again 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.
