Farewell He It's fare thee well cold winter And fare thee well cold frost Nothing have I gained But a lover I have lost I'll sing and I'll be merry When fortune do I see And I'll rest me when I'm weary Let him go and fare well he Last night I saw my true love All down in yonder grove I gave to him a smile Not a word came from my love Well if he likes another And together they agree I can find another lover Let him go and fare well he Take half a pound of reason Half an ounce of common sense A sprig of thyme in season A little sage prudence Then mix them well together And I'll think you'll plainly see He's no lad for windy weather Let him go and farewell he from the singing of Jean Redpath SOF
