Once I loved with fond affection
All his thoughts they were of me
Until a brown girl did persuade him
Now he thinks no more of me.

Go and leave me if you wish it
Never let me cross your mind
And if you think I'm so unworthy
Go and leave me never mind.

Many's the night love with you I've rambled
Many was the happy hour I've spent
I thought you’re heart was mine forever
But now I see ‘twas only lent.

Go and leave me if you wish, love
Never let me cross your mind
And if you think I'm so unworthy
Go and leave me I don't mind.

Many's the night when you were sleeping
Thinking of your next repose
While I poor child girl lies broken-hearted
Listening to the wind that blows.

Go and leave me if you wish it
Never let me cross your mind
And if you think I'm so unworthy
Go and leave me never mind.

Here's the ring that once you gave me
When our love was all entwined
Give it to that dark-eyed lover
She'll never know it once was mine.

Go and leave me if you wish it
Never let me cross your mind
And if you think I'm so unworthy
Go and leave me never mind.

Fare thee well friends and kind relations
Fare thee well you false young man
'Tis you that has caused me pain and sorrow
For I’ll never love again

Go and leave me if you wish it
Never let me cross your mind
And if you think I'm so unworthy
Go and leave me never mind.
