SONG LXII.

O MY LUVE'S LIKE A RED RED ROSE.

AIR.RED RED ROSE.

O my

I.
O my luve's like a red red rose,
That's newly sprung in June:

luve's like the inelodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune.

II.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,

So deep in luve am I:
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

III.
Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt wi' the sun :
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

IV.
And fare thee weel, my only luve!

And fare thee weel a-while !
And I will come again, my luve,

Tho' it were ten thousand mile.
