I'm Going to the West

I'm Going to the West

You say you will not go with me
And turn your eyes away.
You say that we can ne'er agree
No matter though I say
I'm going to the West.

I'll leave you here in the land you love
Mid scenes so bright and fair,
Where fragrant flowers are blossoming
And music fills the air.
I'm going to the West.

In this land I'll stay no more
Here labour is in vain
I'll leave the mountains of my birth
And seek the fertile plain.
I'm going to the West.

Three years have passed since first we met
And you became my bride
Now I must journey far away
Without you at my side.
I'm going to the West.
