Thou Hast Left Me Ever Jamie


Thou hast left me ever, Jamie, Thou hast left me ever; Thou has left me ever, Jamie, Thou hast left me ever: Aften hast thou vow'd that Death Only should us sever; Now thou'st left thy lass for aye - I maun see thee never, Jamie, I'll see thee never. Thou hast me forsaken, Jamie, Thou hast me forsaken; Thou hast me forsaken, Jamie, Thou hast me forsaken; Thou canst love another jo, While my heart is breaking; Soon my weary een I'll close, Never mair to waken, Jamie, Never mair to waken!
