lyrics

Once I had a sweetheart, but now I have none
Once I had a sweetheart, but now I have none
She's gone and left me,
Gone and left me,
Gone and left me in sorrow to mourn.

Last night in sweet slumber I dreamed I did see
My own darling jewel sat smiling by me

But when I awakened I found it not so
My eyes like some fountains with tears overflowed

I'll venture through England, through France and through Spain
All my life I shall venture the watery main

I'll set sail of silver and steer toward the sun
And my false love shall weep for me after I'm gone
