As I leave my love to cross the sea
I curse the hate inside of me
It burns like the fever I left behind
and I cannot drive it from my mind

I would gladly die for her emerald smile
for one more kiss or one more mile
we’d walk thru fields once called our own
now stained with blood they sit alone

I saw her gazing across the sea
and it lit a fire inside of me
her skin as soft as the harvest rain
rooted me to my home again

Yet ‘47 came and stayed
and the rents still must be paid
we married under our family sky
kissed her gaunt cheeks with tears in my eye

her beauty soon relented
as the hunger took its toll
England killed what she could
and the rest he stole

So lament for me as I make my way
and pray that I return someday
with my family name left in good hands
and soft rain falling on my land

She still comes to me so young and pure
and lay’s me down until I’m sure
that the love I left across the sea
will always live inside of me
