Lyrics: Richard Savage

Adieu, ye rocks, that witness'd once my flame,
Return'd my sighs, and echo'd Chloe's name!
Cambria farewell! My Chloe's charms no more
Invite my steps along Lanelly's shore.
Far from that shore, where siren-beauty dwells,
And wraps sweet ruin in resistless spells;
From Cambrian plains, which Chloe's lustre boast,
Me native England yields a safer coast.
