Donítí hasten to bid me do."
"...Come and sit by my side if you love me,
Donítí hasten to bid me do...."
The above sentences were digested from a song named "Red River Valley". Could you please tell me the meaning of "Donítí hasten to bid me do."
Thank you very much.

But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loved you so true
Note that, adieu is pronounced ae'dŁ, ae'dyŁ. Adieu was borrowed into English from French, and the French borrowed it from Latin: ad means, with, and dieu means, God. Adieu used to mean, Go with God. It was a basic farewell saying a long time ago. 8) These days, it means, farewell.
All the best, :D
