Abstract

Oh! come my love, the moon shines bright
Across yon rippling sea,
Come let thy heartbe gay and light,
And hasten love wi' me.
'Tis mony a aight 'sin first we met,
Beneath the greenwod tree,
Then let thy heart be lighter yet,
Come, gang awa' wi' me.
'Tis mony a night sin' first we met,
Beneath the greenwood tree,
Then let thy heart be lighter yet,
Come, gang awa' wi' me.
Oh! tary not, my only love,
I've pledg'd myself to thee;
And by yon stars that shine above,
Forever thine I'll be.
'Tis mony a night sin' first we met,
Beneath the greenwood tree,
Then say ere yonder stars set,
Thou'lt gang awa' wi' me.
'Tis mony a night sin' first we met,
Beneath the greenwood tree,
Then say ere yonder stars set,
Thou'lt gang awa' wi' me
Thy features are so fiar my love,
Thy mind is ever free,
Oh! let thy willing heart still prove,
The love thou bear'st to me.
'Tis mony a night sin' first we met,
Beneath the greenwood tree,
Then say ere yonder stars have set,
I'll gang awa' wi' ye.
'Tis mona a night since first we met,
Beneath the greenwood tree,
Then say ere yonder stars have set,
I'll gang awa' wi' ye.
