Ballad Title The Loyal Lovers Farewel, / Or, The True Lovers Mournful Ditty, / For the absence of her Dearest Love, who upon some Importunate occasion was forc'd / to cross the Seas. / The young-man he in sorrow here bewails / The absence of his Love, while that she sails / On surging waves, he is opprest with fear, / Least in a storm they should shipwrak his dear. / But then with hopes to mittigate his pain, / He prays kind Neptune guard her o're the main / And that no danger e're may her annoy, / But in safety return to Crown his Joy.
