Traditional

As I get doon by Strichen toon
I heard a fair maid mournin'
She was makin' sair complaint
For her true love ne'er returnin'
Chorus:
So fare ye weel ye Mormond Braes,
Where oft times I been cheery
Fare ye weel ye Mormond Braes
For it's there I lost my dearie.

2. There's as guid fish intae the sea
As ever yet was taken
So I'll cast my net an' try again
For I'm only once forsaken.
Chorus:

3. There's many a horse has snappert
An' fa'n and risen again fu' rarely
There's many a lass has lost her lad
An' gotten another right early.
Chorus:

4. So I'll put on my goon o' green,
It's a forsaken token
An' that will let the young lads know
That the bonds of love are broken.
Chorus:

5. So I'll gang back to Strichen toon,
Where I was bred an' born in
And there I'll get another fine girl,
To marry me in the mornin'.
Chorus:
