I know my love

Lyrics

I know my love by his way of walking
And I knew my love by his way of talking
And I know my love in his jersey blue
And if my love leaves me, what will I do ?

Chorus
And still she cried, “I love him best
And a tiring mind sure can know no rest”
And still she cried, bonny boys are few
And if my love leaves me what will I do ?

There is a dance house down in the Mardyke
And there my true, he goes every night
And takes a strange one upon his knee
And don’t you think now that vexes me ?
Chorus

If my love knew I could wash and wring
And if my love knew I could weave and spin
I’d make for him a suit of the finest kind
But the want of money leaves me behind
Chorus

I know my love is an arran rover
And I know my love roams the wide world over
In some foreign town he may chance to tarry
And some foreign. maid he will surely marry
Chorus
