He’s Gone Away

Lyrics

(Folk song)

I’m goin’ away for to stay a little while,
But I’m comin’ back if I go ten thousand miles.
Oh who will shoe your foot?
And who will glove your hand?
And who will kiss those red ruby lips when I am gone?
Look away, look away over yonder.

He’s goin’ away for to stay a little while.
But he’s comin’ back if he goes ten thousand miles.
Oh mama will shoe my foot
And Papa will glove my hand,
And you will kiss those red ruby lips when you come back.
Look away, look away over yonder.
