THE GREEN SHORES OF FOGO

Our barque leaves this harbour tomorrow
Across the wide ocean to go
And Katie a burden of sorrow
It is more than I wish you to know

Fare ye well to the green shores of Fogo
Fare ye well Katie dear true and kind
For where ever I'll be I'll be true to thee
Since old Fogo I'm leaving behind

Now Katie give over your sighing
And don't be downhearted for me
It's my fortune I'm off for to trying
In a far distant land o'er the sea

There's a dark cloud of sorrow hanging over me
There's a precious great weight on my mind
For I know there's one loving me truly
In old Fogo I'm leaving behind

Fare ye well to the green shores of Fogo
Fare ye well Katie dear true and kind
For where ever I'll be I'll be true to thee
Since old Fogo I'm leaving behind
