COME FARE AWAY – Jean Ritchie (melody adapted from an old hymn)
Sung by Ed Trickett. SheetMusic(pdf)

Bright is the morning and brisk is the weather;
Steady the wind o'er the sweet singing sea.
Proudly, the tall ship arides in the harbor;
Come fare away with me.

     Marnie, come fare away,
     Come fare away with me;
     There's an island of dreams
     Over the rolling sea.

Sails at the ready, we're bound for Newfoundland;
Hasten, my darling, and do not delay.
Trees tall and green there, and fish by the millions;
Come fare away with me.

Leave your belongings, for things do but bind us;
Hemmed in, the life here it won't do for me.
Fretting and trouble, we'll leave them behind us;
There is a land that's free.

Lace on your stout shoes of good highland leather;
Bring a warm shawl and a cup for the tea.
There'll be a new life, we'll build it together;
Come fare away with me.
