Shallow Brown (Version 1)

Fare thee well, me Juliana

Shallow, o shallow brown

Fare thee well, me Juliana

Shallow, o shallow brown

And it’s shallow in the morning

Just as the day was dawning

I’ve put me clothes in order

For our packet leaves tomorrow

Yes, our packet leaves tomorrow

And it fills me heart with sorrow

For I love to gaze upon you

And to spend me money on you

O you are me only treasure

And I love ye still full measure

In me cradle lies me baby

I don’t want no other lady

O my wife and baby grieve me

It just breaks me heart to leave ye

For I’m bound away to leave ye

But I never will deceive ye

Fare the well me Juliana

Fare thee well, me Juliana
