Blue-Eyed Lover O, once I had a blue-eyed lover, Once he thought this world of me; Until one day he found some other, Then his love was not on Ine. You take this ring from off your finger And that locket from round my neck; You'll give it to the one you fancy Give it to the one you love. O, once I was on my bed of hap'ness, Now I'm on my bed of sad; But when you meet my blue-eyed baby Then you'll want me back again. O, can't I see those hills and valley Can't I see those mountains stand? Can't I see the sea a-tossing Where my thyme it used to roam. Well, all alone, O all alone, By the seasides he left me; Many happy hour with thee I've spent, All this tilne I'm left a widow At the cottage near the sea. (repeat this verse) From Travellers' Songs, MacColl & Seeger Collected from Caroline Hughes RG 6O FALSE, FALSE HAE YE BEEN TO MY LOVE is liiiri@ult to tie this fragrnent down to a specific title as it share; apr96
