Fare Thee Well

Fare Thee Well

Harry Belafonte

If I had wings like Noah's dove
I'd fly up the river just to see
The woman that I love
Fare thee well oh my honey
I say fare thee well

When I woke up this morning
It was drizzling rain all around my heart
Oh there was an aching pain
Fare thee well oh my honey, I say fare thee well

Now when you wore your apron low
You couldn't keep me
No you couldn't keep me from around your door
Fare thee well oh my honey, I say fare thee well

Now you wear your apron high
You say you never, oh you never you
Scarcely ever see me passing by
Fare thee well oh my honey I say fare thee well
Goodbye woman I know I done you wrong
Oh fare thee well.
