The False Bride = 120 4 3 I ainse loved a lass and I loved her sae well That I hate all others that spoke of her ill But now she's rewarded me ill for my love She's gone tae get wed tae another When I saw my love tae the kirk go Wi bride and bridemaidens they made a fine show And I followed after, my heart filled wi woe To see my love wed tae another When I saw my love sit doon tae dine I sat doon beside her and poured oot the wine And I drank tae the lassie that shoulda been mine But she's gone tae be wed tae another The men of yon forest, they ask it o' me How many strawberries grow in the salt sea I answer them back wi a tear in ma e'e How many ships sail in the forest Go dig me a grave, both long, wide and deep And cover it over wi florets sae sweet And I'll turn in for to take a long sleep And maybe in time I'll forget her And they dug him a grave, both long, wide and deep And they covered it over wi florets sae sweet And he's turned in for to take a long sleep And maybe by now he's forgot her www.abcnotation.com/tunes
