World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 9th February – ‘Ten Thousand Miles’ led by Bella Hardy

*If you would like to pay for choir sessions, please donate to our Young Musician Instrument Bursary Fund: https://donorbox.org/womchoir*

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but if you would like the notation it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

This live choir is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: Ten Thousand Miles

(Traditional)

 

Fare thee well, my own true love

Farewell for a while

I’m going away, but I’ll be back

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 no more return

 

Don’t you see yon turtle dove

Sitting on yon ivy tree

She’s weeping for her own true love

Just as I shall weep for thee

 

Oh come back my own true love

And stay a while with me

For if I had a friend all on this earth

You’ve been a friend to me

 

Fare thee well, my own true love

Farewell for a while

I’m going away, but I’ll be back

If I go ten thousand miles
