lyrics

Black is the color of my true love's hair
Her face is like some rosy fair
With the prettiest face and the neatest hands
I love the ground whereon she stands.

I love my love and well she knows
I love the ground whereon she goes
If you no more on earth I see
I can't serve you as you have me.

The winter's past and the leaves are green
The time has gone that we have seen
And still I hope the day will come
when you and I shall be as one.

I go to the Clyde for to mourn and weep
but satisfied, I never will sleep
I'll write for you a few short lines
and I'll suffer death ten thousand times.

So fare you well, my own true love
Our time has past but I wish you well
And still I hope the day will come
when you and I shall be as one.
