I must away lads, I can no longer tarry,
This evening's tempest I have to cross,
I will be guided without a starlight,
into the arms I love the best.

I walked up to her bedroom window,
I leaned my back there against a stone.
I whispered softly into her window,
"My darlin' lassie do you lie alone?"

She raised her head from her snow white pillow,
and with her arm raised across her breast,
said, "Who is there at my bedroom window,
disturbing me from my long night's rest?"

I said "My true love, it is your own true lover,
open the door now and let me in,
for I have traveled a long long journey,
and I am drench-ed to the skin."

She opened the door then without a murmur,
opened the door then, and let me in.
We gently kissed and embraced each other
and in the morning we lay as one.

The day was dawning, the cocks were calling,
the birds were whistling in every tree.
Farewell my true love, for I must leave you,
now that the long night has turned to day.

I must away love, I can no longer tarry,
this morning's tempest I have to cross,
I will be guided without a starlight,
now that the long night has turned to day.

I must away love, I can no longer tarry,
this morning's tempest I have to cross,
I will be guided without a starlight,
Now that the long night has turned to day,
Now that the long night has turned to day,
Now that the long night has turned to day.
