Farewell, thou false Ohiolander,
Since now from me you rove
And leave me here to wander,
No more to think of love.
I must forever languish,
I must forever mourn;
From love I now am banish'd,
And shall no more return.

Farewell, ungrateful traitor!
Farewell, thou perjured swain
Let never injured creature
Believe your vows again.
The passion you pretended,
Was only to obtain;
For now the charm is ended,
The charmer you disdain.
