There Is A Tav -ern In The Town, in the town.
And there my true love sits him down, sits him down.
And drinks his wine 'mid laugh -ter gay and free,
But nev -er, nev -er thinks of me.
Fare the well for I must leave thee, do not let the part -ing grieve thee,
And re -mem -ber that the best of friends must part, must part.
A -dieu, a -dieu kind friends a -dieu, a -dieu, a -dieu.
I can no long -er stay with you, stay with you.
And I will hang my harp on a weep -ing wil -low tree,
And may the world go well with thee.
