My love she was fair and my love she was kind too
And many were the happy hours, between my love and me
I never could refuse her, whatever she’d a mind to
And now she’s far away, far o’er the stormy sea.

Will my love be true and will my love be faithful
Or will she find another swain to court her where she’s gone
The men will all run after her, so pretty and so graceful
And leave me here lamenting, lamenting all alone.

All ’round my hat I will wear a green willow
All ’round my hat for a twelve month and a day
If anybody asks me the reason why I wear it
It’s all because my true love is far, far away.
