as i was a wand’ring lyrics – emily smith

Loading...

as i was a wand’ring one midsummer’s evening
the pipers and youths were makin their game
well amang them i spied my faithless false lover
that bled a’ the wounds o’ my dolour again

weel since he has left me may pleasure gae wi‘ him
i may be distressed but i winna complain
i’ll flatter my fancy i may get another
my hairt it will never be broken for ane

i couldna get sleepin’ til dawin‘ for greetin’
the tears trickled doon like the hail and the rain
had i no got greetin’ ma hairt it wad hae broken
for oh love forsakens a tormenting pain

weel since he has left me may pleasure gae wi’ him
i may be distressed but i winna complain
i’ll flatter my fancy i may get another
my hairt it will never be broken for ane

although he has left me for greed o’ the siller
i don’t envy him a’ the gains he can win
i raither would bear a’ the lade o’ ma sorrow
than ever hae acted sae faithless tae him

weel since he has left me may pleasure gae wi‘ him
i may be distressed but i winna complain
i’ll flatter my fancy i may get another
my hairt it will never be broken for ane

weel since he has left me may pleasure gae wi’ him
i may be distressed but i winna complain
i’ll flatter my fancy i may get another
my hairt it will never be broken for ane
