Tune—“Fee him, father, fee him.”
 
 
THOU hast left me ever, Jamie,
  Thou hast left me ever;
Thou has left me ever, Jamie,
  Thou hast left me ever:
Aften hast thou vow’d that Death        5

Now thou’st left thy lass for aye—
  I maun see thee never, Jamie,
  I’ll see thee never.
 
Thou hast me forsaken, Jamie,        10

Thou canst love another jo,
  While my heart is breaking;        15
Soon my weary een I’ll close,
  Never mair to waken, Jamie,
Never mair to waken!
