Traditional
  1. I once loved a lass - I loved her sae weel
    I hated all others who spoke of her ill.
    But now she's rewarded me well for my love
    For she's gone tae be wed tae another.
  2. I saw my love To the church go
    The bridegroom and bridemaidens they made a fine show
    And I followed on with my heart full of woe
    She's gone tae be wed tae another.
  3. I saw my love Sit doon to dine
    As I sat doon beside her I poured oot the wine,
    I drank to the lassie that should have been mine
    Even though she'd been wed tae another.
  4. The men o' the forest They asked o' me
    How many strawberries grow in the salt sea,
    I answered the. all wi' a tear in my e'e
    How many ships sail in the forest ?
  5. Dig me a grave Dig it sae deep
    And cover me over with flowers sae sweet
    And I will lie doon and I'll tak a lang sleep
    And maybe in time I'll forget her.
