My Love is Like a Red Red Rose

  • (R.Burns)

    O my love is like a red red rose,
    That's newly sprung in June.
    O my love is like a melodie
    That's sweetly play'd in tune.
    As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
    So deep in love am I
    And I will love thee still, my dear,
    Till a' the seas gang dry.

    Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
    Till a' the seas gang dry,
    And I will love thee still my dear,
    Till a' the seas run dry.

    Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
    And the rocks melt wi' the sun,
    And I will love thee still, my dear,
    While the sands o' life shall run.
    And fare thee weel, my only love,
    And fare thee weel awhile!
    And I will come again, my love
    Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile.

    Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile, my love,
    Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile.
    And I will come again, my love,
    Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile.
