Sandy Denny - The False Bride (The Week Before Easter)

Your rating:
I once loved a lass and I loved her so well
And I hated all others who spoke of her ill
And now she's rewarded me well for my love
For she's gone and she's wed another

And I saw my love up to the church go
With bridesmen and bridesmaidens she made a fine show
And I followed on with my heart full of woe
For she's gone and she's wed another

I saw my love as she sat down to dine
I sat down beside her and poured the wine
And I thought of the lassie that should have been mine
Now she's gone and she's wed another

All the men in yon forest they asked of me
How many strawberries grow in a salt sea?
And I answer them with a tear in my eye
How many ships sail in the forest?

Oh, dig me a grave and dig it sae deep
And cover it over with wee flowers sae sweet
And I lay me down for to take a long sleep
And maybe in time I'll forget her

So they dug him a grave and they dug it sae deep
And they covered it over with wee flowers sae sweet
And he lay him down for to take a long sleep
And maybe in time he'll forget her
