Fond Affection

Once I [D]loved your fond affection, all my [G]hopes on you was [D]spent,

till a [G]dark-eyed girl per[D]suaded, and you [A]care no more for [D]me.

Go on and [D]leave me, if you wish to, never [G]let me cross your [D]mind,

in your [G]heart to love an[D]other, never on [A]earth will I call you [D]mine.

Joo[D]layeeoh, [A]layee[A7]ay, [D]layee !

 

When I’m dead and in my coffin, and my pale face towards the sun,

will you come and sit beside me, and think of what you’ve done

Go on and leave me, if you wish to, never let me cross your mind,

in your heart to love another, never on earth will I call you mine.

Joolayeeoh, layeeay, layee !

 

When I’m dead and in my coffin, and the shroud about me bows,

will you come and scatter roses upon your lover’s mound.

Go on and leave me, if you wish to, never let me cross your mind,

in your heart to love another, never on earth will I call you mine.

Joolayeeoh, layeeay, layee !
