Once I Had a Sweetheart

Once I Had a Sweetheart

Once I had a sweetheart and now I have none   /x2
He's gone and leave me  /x3
To sorrow and moan

Last night in sweet slumber I dreamed I did see   /x2

My own precious jewel sat smiling by me  /x2
And when I awaken I found it not so
My tears like some fountains with tears overflow

I'll venture through England, through France and through Spain

All my life I will venture till water remain
