Lyrics: Go Your Way My Love

Back

Drawing water from the well,
Spilling over on the grass,
Walking homeward my mind is filled with pain.
Woe is me

Go your way, my love,
Go your way, my love.

As I wander through the trees,
Picking up the windy leaves,
Thinking where you may be sleeping now.
I want to die.

Go your way, my love,
Go your way, my love.

As I sit mending your clothes,
That you will never, ever wear,
Looking daily for you I do prepare.
But woe is me.

Go your way, my love,
Go your way, my love.

Is there war in some far land,
And have you gone to lend your hand.
And do you lie broken and dying now.
I want to die.

Go your way, my love,
Go your way, my love.

Drawing water from the well,
Spilling over on the grass,
Oh woe.

Go your way, my love,
Go your way, my love.
