lyrics

Traditional

As time draws near
My dearest dear
When you and I must part
What little you know
Of the grief and woe
In my poor aching heart

'Tis but I suffer for your sake
You're the girl I love so dear
I wish that you could come with me
Or I was staying here

I wish my breast
Was made of glass
Wherein you might behold
Oh, there your name
Lies wrote, my love
In letters made of gold

In letters made of gold, my love
Believe me when I say
You are the one I'll love the best
Until my dying day

The blackest crow
That ever flew
Would surely turn to white
If ever I
Prove false to you
Bright day'd be turned to night

Bright day'd be turned to night, my love
The elements shall mourn
If ever I prove false to you
The sea would rage and burn
