Farewell Anthem

1.

My friends, I am going a long and tedious journey,

Never to return; I am going a long journey, never to return.

I am going a long journey, Never to return.

(Repeat previous line).

215

Never to return, never to return, never to return;

Never, never never, never, to return;

Fare you well, my friends.

(Repeat previous line twice),

And God grant we may meet together in that world above,

Where trouble shall cease and harmony shall abound,

216

Hark! hark! my dear friends, for death hath called me,

And I must go, and lie down in the cold and silent grave,

Where the mourners cease from mourning, and the prisoner is set free;

Where the rich and poor are both alike;

Fare you well, fare you well, fare you well, fare you well,

Fare you well, my friends.
