FAREWEL TO LOCHABER 1806 Fare wel to Loch a ber, and fare wel my 4 3 tr Jean, Where heart some with thee I hae mo ny days been; For Loch a ber no more, Loch a ber no tr more, We'll may be re turn to Loch a ber no more. These tears that I shed they are a' for my dear, And no for the dan gers at tend ing on weir; Tho' borne on rough seas to a far blood y shore, May be to re turn to Loch a ber no more. 2. Tho' hurricanes rise, and raise ev'ry wind, They'll ne'er make a tempest like that in my mind; Tho' loudest of thunders on louder waves roar, That's naething like leaving my love on the shore. To leave thee behind me my heart is sair pain'd; But by ease that's inglorious no fame can be gain'd; And beauty and love's the reward of the brave; And I maun deserve it before I can crave. 3. Then glory, my Jeany, maun plead my excuse; Since honour commands me, how can I refuse? Without it, I ne'er can have merit for thee, And losing thy favour I'd better not be. I gae, then, my lass, to win glory and fame, And if I should chance to come gloriously hame, I'll bring a heart to thee with love running o'er, And then I'll leave thee and Lochaber no more. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
