Will Ye Gang Love

Traditional. Arrangement The Black Family


As I came in by yon rushy wood
What spied I at my true loves door
My heart stood still, me eyes grew blind
For to see my bonnie lad leave me behind

Chorus

And will you gang love and leave me now
Will ye gang love and leave me now
Will ye foresake your own love true
And gang wi' a lass that you never knew

As I came in by yon lenten wend
I spied another my love attend
I bowed my head, I cried ochón
The best of my good days are gone

Chorus

And I will tell you the reason why
Because she's got more gold than I
And I will tell you the reason true
The sweeter taste of a love that's new

Chorus

I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a trusty tree
But first it bent and then it broke
And so has my love done unto me

Chorus

And if you love me we'll never part
And instead of gold you can have my heart
You can have my heart with a right good will
You're a bonnie laddie, I love you still

Chorus
