Lyrics

– Proshchay, bat'ko, proshchay, maty, proshchay, dyvko moya,
Oy Boh znaye, Boh vedaye, chy vernus' ya z boyu.

Proshchay, bat'ko, proshchay, maty, – nyzen'ko vklonyvsa.
– Proshchay, proshchay, vsya hromado, mo, z kym y posvaryvsa.

– Vernys, vernys, kozachen'ko, bo bat'ko vmiraye.
– Ne vernusa, ne vernusa – lyudy pokhovayut'.

– Vernys, vernys, kozachen'ko, bo maty vmiraye.
– Ne vyernusa, ne vyernusa, mo, khtos' pokhovaye.

– Vernys, vernys, kozachen'ko, bo myla vmiraye.
/ – Budu skorey konya hnaty, shchob zhyvuyu zastaty. / 2
