Thou Hast Left Me Ever, Jamie

Melody - "Fee him, father, fee him"

Robert Burns, 1793

|: Thou hast left me ever, Jamie,
Thou hast left me ever; :|
Aften hast thou vow'd that Death
Only should us sever;
Now thou'st left thy lass for aye
I maun see thee never, Jamie,
I'll see thee never.
2. |: Thou hast me forsaken, Jamie,
Thou hast me forsaken; :|
Thou canst love another jo,
While my heart is breaking;
Soon my weary een I'll close,
Never mair to waken, Jamie,
Never mair to waken!
