W:I’ll do as much for my true love W:As any young man may. W:I’ll sit and mourn upon her grave W:For twelve months and a day. W: W:2 W:When twelve months and a day were done W:A voice began to speak W:Who is it that sits upon my grave W:And will not let me sleep? W:Tis I, tis I, thine own true love W:That sits upon your grave; W:I came to seek of your sweet lips W:Once kiss is all I crave. W: W:3 W:You seek one kiss of my clay cold lips W:But my breath is earthy-strong W:If you had one kiss of my lily-white lips W:Your time would not be long. W:My Time be long my time be short W:Ten-thousand years or a day: W:May God in heaven have all my soul, W:But I’ll kiss your lips of clay. W: W:4 W:See down in yonder garden green? W:Love, where we were used to walk: W:The fairest flower that e’er was seen W:Is withered to the stalk. W:The stalk is withered dry my love! W:So shall our hearts decay! W:So make yourself content my love, W:Until death calls you away! % % % % %
