18th century English folk ballad first published in Roxburghe Ballads dated 1710; the lyrics were there given the title "The True Lover's Farewell".
Fare thee well my own true love
And farewell for a while.
I’m going away, but I’ll come again
If I go ten thousand miles.
Ten thousand miles, my own true love,
Ten thousand miles or more,
And the rocks may melt and the seas may burn,
If I should not return.
