Fare Thee Well Love
copyright Jimmy Rankin 1993

Fare thee well love,
Fare thee well love.
Far away, you must go.
Take your heart love, 
Take your heart love.
Will we never meet,
Again no more.

Far across love,
Far across love.
O'er the mountains and country wide.
Take my heart love, 
Take my heart love
No one knows
The tears I've cried.

So I'll drink today love, 
I'll sing to you love.
I'm pauper's glory, 
My time I'll bide.
No home or ties love,
A restless rover
If I can't have you 
by my side.

Oh come back love, 
Oh come back love.
The sun and moon
Refuse to shine.
Since I've gone love, 
Gone away love,
This lonely girl has had
No peace of mind.

So I'll drink today love
I'll sing to you love.
In pauper's glory, 
my time I'll bide.
No home or ties love,
A restless rover
If I can't have you
By my side.

Fare thee well love, 
Fare thee well love.
Far away, 
you must go.
Take my heart love, 
Take your heart love, 
Will we never meet again no more.
Will we never meet again no more.
