The Songs He Sang
Turtle Dove: Lyrics
As performed by Cisco Houston
O can you see that little turtle dove Sitting under the mulberry tree? See how that she doth mourn for her true love As I shall mourn for thee, my dear As I shall mourn for thee The sea will never run dry, my dear Nor the rocks never melt with the sun And I ne'er will prove false to the bonnie lass I love 'Till all these things be done, my dear 'Till all these things be done, Oh fare thee well, my own true love Oh fare thee well for a while And though I go I will always come again If I go ten thousand miles, my dear If I go ten thousand miles
Less said the better. The art song was not his strength.
