Can You Leave Me Thus, My Katy

Canst thou leave me thus, my Katy,
Canst thou leave me thus, my Katy;
Well though know'st my aching heart,
And canst thou leave me thus for pity.

Is this thy plighted, fond regard,
Thus cruelly to part, my Katy:
Is this thy faithful swain's reward-
An aching broken heart, my Katy.


Farewel! And ne'er such sorrows tear
That fickle heart of thine, my Katy!
Thou mayest find those will love thee dear,
But not a love like mine, my Katy.
