Come O My Love Come O my love, and fare you well (2x) You slighted me, but I wish you well. The winter has gone, and the leaves turn green; Your innocent face, I wish I never had seen. The prison doors roll open wide; Upon my coffin, they made me ride. Come O my love, and fare you well You slighted me, but I wish you well. All in dark dungeons I was placed Until the day of May eleventh I faced. The rope was bought and the bow was swung An innocent man you all have hung. Come O my love, and see me die Lift your innocent face, see me dance in the sky. Note: I don't know a damn thing about this song. It appeared in a paperback collection called Frankie and Johnny in 1948, and I never forgot it: nobody else seems to remember it. RG RG
