Now Black is the colour of my true love's hair,
Her lips are like some roses fair,
The sweetest smile the gentlest hand,
I love the ground where on she stands

I love my love and well she knows
I love the ground where on she goes
I hope the day will one day come
When she and I will be as one

Now Black is the colour of my true love's hair,
Her lips are like some roses fair,
The sweetest smile the gentlest hand,
I love the ground where on she stands

I go to the Clyde for to mourn and weep
For satisfied, I never can be
I write her letters, just a few short lines
and suffer death a thousand times.

Now Black is the colour of my true love's hair,
Her lips are like some roses fair,
The sweetest smile the gentlest hand,
I love the ground where on she stands

I love the ground where on she stands
Thanks to for the correction
