Three years have gone by and I've not got a dollar; Evalina stills lives in the green grassy hollow; Although I am fated to marry her never, I love her, I'm sure, forever and ever.
There is a tree I love to pass, And it has leaves as green as grass, But not as green as love is true; I love but one and that is you.
Bring to me my blue-eyed boy! Bring, 0 bring him back to me! Bring to me my blue-eyed boy, What a happy, happy girl I'd be.
Must I go bound and he go free? Must I love one that don't love me? Or must I act a childish part And love the one that broke my heart?
Go bear, go bear, go bear in mind That a good true friend is hard to find, And when you find one good and true Never change the old one for the new.
