Fare thee well
My own true love
Farewell for a while
I'm going away
But I'll be back
Though I go 10,000 miles

10,000 miles
My own true love
10,000 miles or more
The rocks may melt
And the seas may burn
If I should not return

Oh don't you see
That lonesome dove
Sitting on an ivy tree
She's weeping for
Her own true love
As I shall weep for mine

Oh come ye back
My own true love
And stay a while with me
If I had a friend
All on this earth
You've been a friend to me

    General CommentThis song was in the Disney movie "Fly Away Home." Beautiful song... I think it's originally Irish or something.

    General Commentthis song is sooo beautiful and sad. I heard it from "fly away home" and liked it. It makes me want to cry. When I hear it, I think of those i love dying....isn't that sad?

    i get confused if she is talking about her own true love being far away or her own true love died and 10,000 miles may be meaning how far away he is like he is in heaven or sumthin..hmm..idk.

    General CommentI heard this from the Disney Movie too.
    This is my fav song ever. It reminds me of my best friend, who lives on the oppsite side of the country.
    Southen England. And well, she's been through EVERYTHING with me. and we've still never met.
    That last verse gets me in tears everytime. This song is utterly beautiful.

    General CommentMy Girlfriend and i are in a long distance relationship and things have come up that have put major stress on our lives so she asked to take a break for a while. We both are still very much in love but i'm having a hard time being positive about the split. This song is bittersweet...very painful...but a very good one.

    General Commentthis song always reminds me of my two best friends one who died in this past January and the other over the summer the part where it says
    If I had a friend
    All on this earth
    You’ve been a friend to me

    it always gets to me...
    i miss you shelby and Ca$h see you at the crossroads!!!

    General CommentI'm moving to Canada from England in the next few months and this song just seems to fit perfectly the way I feel about leaving my friends and the guy I like. It's such an amazing song.
