Meet Me By The Moonlight Alone

I'm going to my new jail tomorrow

To leave the one that I love

To leave my friends and relations

And oh how lonely my love


   Meet me by the moonlight love meet me

   Meet me by the moonlight alone

   For I have a sad story to tell you

   To be told by the moonlight alone


My parents have cruelly treat me

They drive me away from their door

If I live a hundred years longer

I'll never go back anymore


If I had a ship on the ocean

All laid and lined with pure gold

Before my darling should suffer

I'd have that ship anchored and sold


If I had the wings of an angel

O'er land and sea I would fly

I'd fly to the arms of my darling

And I'd be willing to die
