Abstract

Oh! come my love, the moon shines bright
Across yon rippling sea,
Come let thy heart be gay and light,
And hasten love 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.
'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! tarry not, my only love, I've pledg'd myself to thee;
And by yon starts 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 have set,
Thou'lt gang awa' wi' me.
'Tis mony a night sin' first we met,
Beneath the greenwood tree,
Then say ere yonder stars have set,
Thou'lt gang awa' wi' me.
Thy features are so fair 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,
Thou'lt gang awa' wi' me.
'Tis mony a night sin' first we met,
Beneath the greenwood tree,
Then say ere yonder stars have set,
Thou'lt gang awa' wi' me.
