Fare you well my honey 
Fare you well my only true one
All the birds that were singing 
Have flown except you alone 

 Going to leave this broke-down palace 
On my hands and my knees I will roll roll roll
Make myself a bed by the waterside 
In my time, in my time, I will roll roll roll

In a bed, in a bed
By the waterside I will lay my head
 Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

 River gonna take me
Sing me sweet and sleepy 
Sing me sweet and sleepy 
All the way back back home
It's a far gone lullaby 
Sung many years ago
Mama, Mama, many worlds I've come
 Since I first left home

 Going home, going home
By the waterside I will rest my bones  Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

 Going to plant a weeping willow
On the banks green edge it will grow grow grow
Sing a lullaby beside the water  Lovers come and go, the river roll roll roll

Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
 Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul
