The Slave's Lament
(Robert Burns)

 It was in sweet Senegal
 That my foes did me enthral
 For the lands of Virginia, -ginia, O!
 Torn from that lovely shore,
 And must never see it more,
 And alas! I am weary, weary, O!

 All on that charming coast
 Is no bitter snow and frost,
 Like the lands of Virginia, -ginia, O!
 There streams for ever flow,
 And the flowers for ever blow,
 And alas! I am weary, weary, O!

 The burden I must bear,
 While the cruel scourge I fear,
 In the lands of Virginia, -ginia, O!
 And I think on friends most dear
 With the bitter, bitter tear,
 And alas! I am weary, weary, O!
