The Turtle Dove

English Folk Song

English song of farewell by a man for his beloved who promises „If I roam away I’ll come back again, Though I roam ten thousand miles, my dear“. The melody was notated in 1903 by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) when he heard it being sung by a shepherd. (arr.: Euwe de Jong)

English Folk Song (True Lover’s Farewell)

Fare you well, my dear, I must be gone,
And leave you for a while;
If I roam away I'll come back again,
Though I roam ten thousand miles, my dear,
Though I roam ten thousand miles.

As fair thou art, my bonny lass,
So deep in love am I;
But I never will prove false to the pretty girl I love,
Till the stars fall from the sky, my dear,
Till the stars fall from the sky.

O yonder doth sit that little turtle dove,
He doth sit on yonder high tree,
A-making a moan for the loss of his love,
As I will do for thee, my dear,
As I will do for thee.
