Will Ye Gang, Love (2) My love he stands in yon chaumer door Combing doob his yellow hair His curly locks I like to see I wonder if my love minds on me. cho: Will ye gang, love, and leave me noo Will ye gang, love, and leave me noo Will ye forsake your own true love And gang wi' a lass that ye never knew? I wish, I wish, I wish in vain I wish I were a maid again, But a maid again I'll never be Till an apple grows on an orange tree. I wish, I wish my babe was born I wish it sat on's daddy's knee And I myself were deid and gone And the wavin' grass all o'er me growin'. As lang as my apron did bide doon He followed me frae toon tae toon But noo it's up and above my knee My lovce gaes by but kens nae me. Make my grave baith lang and deep Put a bunch of roses at my head and feet And in the middle put a turtle dove Let the people know I died of love. note: Not only is the sentiment universal, so, apparently, are the words.
