Bring Back My Blue-Eyed Boy To Me

print

‘Tis true the rainbow has no end
It’s hard to find a faithful friend
And when you find one just and true
Change not the old one for the new

Bring back my blue-eyed boy to me
Bring back my blue-eyed boy to me
Bring back my blue-eyed boy to me
That I may ever happy be

Must I go bound and him go free
Must I love the boy that don’t love me
Or must I act the childish part
And love that boy that broke my heart

Last night my lover promised me
To take me across the deep blue sea
And nows he’s gone and left me alone
An orphaned girl without a home

Oh dig my grave both wide and deep
Place a marble at my head and feet
And on my breast a snow-white dove
To show to the world I died for love
