Lyrics

Fare thee well
My own true love
Farewell for a while
I'm going away
But I'll return
If I go 10,000 miles

10,000 miles
My own true love
10,000 miles or more
And the rocks may melt
And the seas may burn
If I no more return

And you see
Yon lonesome dove
Sitting on an ivy tree
She's weeping for
Her own true love
As I will weep for mine

Oh come back
My own true love
Stay a while with me
For if I had a friend
All on this earth
Then you'll be a friend to me, my dear

Oh come back
My own true love
Stay a while with me
For if I had a friend
All on this earth

Then you'll be that friend to me, my dear
You'll be that friend to me
Then you'll be that friend to me, my dear
You'll be that friend to me
