Melody - a variation of The Ship That Never Returned
Meet me by moonlight alone,|
And then I will tell you a tale,
Must be told by the moonlight alone,
In the grove at the end of the vale.
You must promise to come, for I said
|: Oh! meet me by moonlight alone,
1. Meet me tonight, lover, meet me,
O meet me in the moonlight alone,
I have a sad story to tell you,
Must be told in the moonlight alone.
2. I'm going to jail to-morrow,
3. Your father and mother don't like me,|
Or they'd never've drove me from their door;
If I had my life to live over
I would never go there no more.
4. I wish I had never been born
5. If I had a-minded my mother
6. I have three ships on the ocean
7. If I had the wings of an eagle
