W:And as I drew nigh him it put me to a stand W:WShen I knew it was my true love by the mark on his hand. W: W:2 W:As he was a sailing from his own dear shore W:Where the waves and the billowsso loudly do roar. W:I said to my true love, I shall see you no more W:So farewell my dearest, you're the lad I adore. W: W:3 W:She put her arms around him saying, O my dear! W:She wep't and she kissed him ten thousand times o'er W:O I am contented to lie by thy side W:And in a few moments, this lover she died. W: W:4 W:And all in the churchyard these two were laid W:And a stone for rememberance was laid on her grave. W:My joys are all ended my pleasures are fled. W:This grave that I lie in is my new married bed.
