Once I had true love but now I have none
Once I had true love and now I have none
He's gone and leave me, he's gone and leave me
In sorrow to mourn

Last night in sweet slumber I dreamed I did see
Last night in sweet slumber I dreamed I did see
My only? true love come passing by me
My only? true love come passing by me

But when I awoken I found it not so
But when I awoken I found it not so
My eyes like fountains with tears overflow
My eyes like fountains with tears overflow

My true love is married or otherwise dead
My true love is married or otherwise dead
His bunch of blue ribbons I'll wear round my head
His bunch of blue ribbons I'll wear round my head

I'll then search through England, through France and through Spain
I'll then search through England, through France and through Spain
My life I will venture o'er the watery main
My life I will venture o'er the watery main
