WILLIE MY BRAVE
2 He said his bark would soon return,
And with a kiss they parted;
But when a year had passed away,
She then grew weary-hearted; Oh, 'twas sad, from day to day, To hear the maiden's plaintive lay: Come o'er the billow, Ride on the wave, Come while the wind bloweth, Willie my brave!
3. None who knew the maiden's grief,
And saw her heart's devotion,
Would tell her of the fragile bark
That sank beneath the ocean; But when all hope had passed away, Her life breathed forth its parting lay: Come over the billow,
Ride on the wave, Come while the wind bloweth, Willie my brave!
