W: W:2 W:I begged hard for my darling as I would for my life. W:But they'd not listen to me although a fond wife, W:Saying: The king must have sailors, to the seas he must go, W:And they left me lamenting in sorrow and woe. W: W:3 W:Through green fields and meadows we of times have walked, W:And the fond recollections together have talked, W:Where the lark and the blackbird so sweetly did sing, W:And the lovely thrushes' voices made the valleys to ring. W: W:4 W:Now although I'm forsaken, I won't be cast down. W:Who knows but my true love some day may return W:And will make me amends for my trouble and strife, W:And me and my true love might live happy for life. % % % % % % % % %]
