  • Come all ye fair and tender ladies
    Take warning how you board young men
    They're like a star on summer mornin'
    They'll thirst a fear and then they're gone

    They'll tell to you some lovin' story
    And they make you think that they love you well
    Then away they'll go and court some other
    And leave you there in grief to dwell

    I wish I was on some tall mountain
    Where the ivy rocks are black as ink
    I'd write a letter to my lost true lover
    Whose cheeks are like the mornin' pink

    For love is handsome, love is charming
    And love is pretty while it's new
    But love grows cold as love grows old
    And fades away like the mornin' dew
    And fades away like the mornin' dew
    And fades away like the mornin' dew
