I'm Going to the West You say you will not go with me And turn your eyes away. You say that we can ne'er agree No matter though I say I'm going to the West. I'll leave you here in the land you love Mid scenes so bright and fair, Where fragrant flowers are blossoming And music fills the air. I'm going to the West. In this land I'll stay no more Here labour is in vain I'll leave the mountains of my birth And seek the fertile plain. I'm going to the West. Three years have passed since first we met And you became my bride Now I must journey far away Without you at my side. I'm going to the West. JO oct99
