Marie Ann (Trad)

Oh fare you well my own true love,
Fare you well my dear;
For the ship is waiting and the wind blows high,
And I am bound away for the sea, Mary Ann. 

And I am bound away for the sea Marie Ann

.

Oh yonder don’t you see the turtle dove
That sits on yonder stile,
Lamenting the loss of her own true love
As I do now for mine love Mary Anne.

As I do now for mine love Mary Anne.

.

And if I should suffer grieve an pain

Tis for a little while 

for thou I must go I’ll return again 

Thou I go ten thousand miles my love Marie Ann

Thou I go ten thousand miles my love Marie Ann

.

And the waves shall cease to beat the shore

The Stars fall from the skys

but I will love you more and more

Until the day I die my lover Marie Ann

Until the day I die my lover Marie Ann
