X:1 T:The Flowers Of The Forest C:Trad K: W:1 I've heard them liltin' at oor yowe milkin', W:Lasses a' liltin', before dawn o' day; W:Noo there's a' moanin', in ilka green loanin'; W:The Flow'rs o' the Forest are a' wede away. W: W:2 At buchts in the mornin' nae blythe lads are scornin', W:Lasses are lanely and dowie, and wae; W:Nae daffin', nae gabbin', but sighin' and sabbin'; W:Ilk ane lifts her leglin, and hies her away. W: W:3 At e'en in the gloamin', nae swankies are roamin', W:'Bout staoks wi' the lasses at bogle to play; W:But ilk ane sits drearie, lamentin' her dearie, W:The Flow'rs o' the Forest are a' wede away. W: W:4 We hae nae mair liltin', at oor yowe milkin', W:Women and bairns are heartless and wae; W:Sighin' and moanin' on ilka green loanin', W:The Flow'rs o' the Forest are a' wede away. % % % % %
