Canst Thou Leave Me Thus, My Katie

Melody - "Roy's Wife"
Line

Robert Burns, 1794

Chorus:
|: Canst thou leave me thus, my Katie? :|
Well thou know'st my aching heart,
And canst thou leave me thus, for pity?

Is this thy plighted, fond regard,
Thus cruelly to part, my Katie?
Is this thy faithful swain's reward
An aching, broken heart, my Katie!
Chorus:

2. Farewell! and ne'er such sorrows tear
That finkle heart of thine, my Katie!
Thou maysn find those will love thee dear,
But not a love like mine, my Katie.
Chorus:
