THE "FAREWELL SONG"

Midi Symbol MIDI File [6KB, 1' 30"]

GENERAL DEELAH (Spoken melodramatically) — "Wilt thou not say say good-bye? not one word of adieu? Ah! cruel one!"

Fare thee well, a long farewell! (MRS. W. cries aloud.)
  But where to go I cannot tell! (MRS. W. cries aloud.)
Adieu, adieu, my native shore! (MRS. W. weeps.)
  She must have heard those words before.
    Fare thee well, my Mary Anne,
For me Susannah don't you cry;
You will not kill me for my mother,
Good-bye, good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye, good-bye, sweetheart,
  good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye, good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye.
Good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye, good-bye,
  sweetheart, good-bye.
Good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye, good-bye,
  sweetheart, good-bye. (MRS. W. falls on keys.)
