The Rejected Lover
6 The leaves they will wither, And the roots they will decay; And the beauty of a fair young girl Will soon fade away, O will soon fade away.
2   And she took me by the hand, And she led me to the door, And she put her arms around me, Saying: You can't come any more, O you can't come any more.
3   And I'd not been gone but six months Before she did complain ;
And she wrote me a letter Saying : O do come again, O do come again.
