W: W:2 My love she was fair, and my love she was kind, too, W:And many were the happy hours between my love and me; W:I never could refuse her whatever she'd a mind to, W:But now she's far away, far across the stormy sea. W: W:3 O will my love be true, and will my love be faithful? W:Or will she find another swain to court her where she's gone? W:The men will all run after her, so pretty and so graceful, W:And perhaps she may forget me, lamenting all alone. W: W:4 So all round my hat I will wear a green willow, W:All round my hat for a twelvemonth and a day: W:And if anybody asks me the reason why I wear it. W:Its all because my true love is far, far away. % % % % %
