  1. Black, black, black is the colour of my true love's hair,
    Her face is fine and wondrous fair,
    The handsomest face and the gentlest hands,
    I love the ground whereon she stands.
  2. I go to the Clyde for to mourn and weep
    But satisfied I never can sleep
    I'll write to you in a few short lines
    I'll suffer death ten thousand times
  3. I love my love and well she knows
    I love the grass whereon she goes.
    If she on earth no more I see
    My life will quickly fade away
  4. The winter's past and the leaves are green,
    Gone are the days that we have seen.
    But still I hope that the time will come,
    Then you and I will be as one.
  5. Black is the colour of my true love's hair,
    Her lips are like some rosy fair
    The purest eyes and the neatest hands
    I love the ground whereon she stands.
