    "As I Roved Out" Lyrics

    Jane Siberry

    As I roved out one bright May morning
    To view the purple heather and flowers gay
    Who should I spy but my own true lover
    As she sat under yon willow tree

    I took off my hat and I did salute her
    I did salute her most courageously
    When she turned around and the tears fell from her eyes
    Saying, "False young man, you have deluded me"

    Three diamond rings for love I gave you
    Three diamond rings to wear on your right hand

    But the vows you made, love, you went and broke them
    And married the lassie that had the land

    If I married the lassie that had the land, my love
    'Tis that I'll rue until the day I die
    But when fortune calls few men can shun it
    I was a blind fool was I

    Now at night when I go to my bed of slumber
    The thoughts of my true love run in my mind
    When I turned around to embrace my darling
    Instead of gold 'tis brass I find

    And I wish the Queen would call home her armies
    From the West Indies, America and Spain
    And every man to his homeland would run
    And I in hope that we'd meet again

    As I roved out one bright May morning
    To view the purple heather and flowers gay
    Who should I spy but my own true lover
    As she sat under yon willow tree
