Catalan Folk Song — English lyrics: Jackie O’ Neill

Farewell, lad, a fond farewell, lad.
I weep and grieve at the thought of parting.
Farewell, lad, a fond farewell,
and I pray one day you will be returning.

Young man, with a face so handsome,
why must you go into war a-marching?
A youth, with a face so handsome,
becomes a soldier in days of war.

Return when the fighting's o'er,
when your captain brave needs you there no more.
Return when the fighting's o'er,
I'll be waiting here, I'll be waiting here.
