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.
2. When I saw my love tae the kirk go
3. When I saw my love sit doon tae dine
4. 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?
5. Go dig me a grave, both long, wide and deep
6. And they dug him a grave, both long, wide and deep
