Come O My Love

Come O my love, and fare you well (2x)
You slighted me, but I wish you well.

The winter has gone, and the leaves turn green;
Your innocent face, I wish I never had seen.

The prison doors roll open wide;
Upon my coffin, they made me ride.

Come O my love, and fare you well
You slighted me, but I wish you well.

All in dark dungeons I was placed
Until the day of May eleventh I faced.

The rope was bought and the bow was swung
An innocent man you all have hung.
Come O my love, and see me die
Lift your innocent face, see me dance in the sky.

Note: I don't know a damn thing about this song. It appeared
 in a paperback collection called Frankie and Johnny in 1948,
 and I never forgot it: nobody else seems to remember it. RG
