I Live Not Where I Love Come all ye maids who live at a distance Many a mile from off your love Come and assist me this very moment For to pass away some time Singing sweetly and completely Songs of pleasure and of love My heart is with you all together Though I live not where I love When I sleep I dream about you When I wake I find no rest Every moment thinking of you My heart fixed within your breast Though great distance may prove assistance From my mind your love to remove My heart is with you all together Though I live not where I love All the world should be one religion All living things should cease to die If ever I prove false to my jewel Any way my love deny The world would change and be most strange If ever I inconstant prove My heart is with you all together Though I live not where I love So farewell lads and farewell lasses Now I think I've got my choice I'll away to yonder island Where I think I hear your voice If you call then I will follow Though the ocean be so wide My heart is with you all together Thought I live not where I love sung by Jean Redpath SOF
