Lover's Farewell


[D]We have met and we have [G]parted
We have [D]spoke our last good[A]bye
You have [D]proved to me false [G]hearted
You may [D]now [A]forever [D]go

You have ]wrecked the heart I've cherished
You have done me day by day
You are false but I'll forgive you
To forget you I cannot say


For I love you dear I love you
 More than all this world I know
You have proved to me false hearted
 You may now forever go

+ D - G - D - A    - D - G - D - A - D

On the river bank I'll loiter
Till I see your face once more
Then I'll plunge beneath the water
And I'll land on some far shore


Among the trees and bushes
Where the dark green willow sway
In the cold and silent rushes
There you'll find my lonely grave


O I wish I was white marble
Cold and white on some far shore
This poor heart would cease from troubling
And I'd feel the pain no more
