Derwentwater's Farewell = 100 4 3 Farewell to pleasant Dilston Hall, My father's ancient seat, A stranger now must call thee his, Which gars my heart to greet. Farewell each friendly, well-known face, My heart has held so dear, My tenants now must leave their lands Or hold their lives in fear. No more along the banks of Tyne I'll rove in autumn gray, No more I'll hear at early dawn The lav'rocks wake the day, Then fare thee well, brave Witherington, And Forster, ever true, Dear Shaftesbury and Errington Receive my last adieu. And fare thee well, George Collingwood, Since fate has put us down, If thou and I have lost our lives Our King has lost his crown. Farewell, farewell, my lady dear, Ill, ill, thou counsel'dst me; I never more may see the babe That smiles upon thy knee. And fare thee well, my bonny gray steed, That carried me aye so free; I wish I had been asleep in my bed Last time I mounted thee. The warning bell now bids me cease, My trouble's nearly o'er, Yon sun that rises from the sea Shall rise on me no more. Albeit that, here in London town It is my fate to die, Oh! carry me to Northumberland, In my father's grave to lie. There chant my solemn requiem In Hexham's holy towers; And let six maids from fair Tynedale Scatter my grave with flowers. And when the head that wears the crown Shall be laid low like mine, Some honest hearts may then lament For Radcliffe's fallen line. Farewell to pleasant Dilston Hall, My father's ancient seat, A stranger now must call thee his, Which gars my heart to greet. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
