Thou hast left me ever

THOU hast left me ever, Jamie,
Thou hast left me ever.
Thou hast left me ever, Jamie,
Thou hast left me ever.
Aften hast thou vow’d that Death,
Only should us sever:
Now thou ‘s left thy lass for ay--------
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 cast love anither jo,
While my heart is breaking:
Soon my weary een I’ll close--
Never mair to waken, Jamie,
Ne’er mair to waken.
