Ten Thousand Miles

This song is by Nic Jones and appears on the album The Noah's Ark Trap (1977) and on the Live compilation album Unearthed (2001).

Fare you well, my own true love,
Farewell for a while;
I'm going away, but I'll be back
If I go ten thousand miles.

Ten thousand miles, my own true love,
Ten thousand miles or more.
And the rocks may melt and the seas may burn
If I no more return.

Oh don't you see yon lonesome dove
Sitting on yon ivy tree:
She's weeping for her own true love
As I shall weep for mine.

Oh come back, my own true love,
And stay a while with me;
For if I had a friend all on this earth
You've been a friend to me.
