I Once Loved A Lass Lyrics

I once loved a lass and I loved her so well
I hated all others that spoke of her ill
But now, she's rewarded me well for my love
For she's gone to be wed to another
When I saw my love go through the church doors
With bride and bridesmaiden, they made a fine show
And I followed along with my heart full of woe
For now she is wed to another
When I saw my love a-sit down to dine
I sat down beside her and I poured out the wine
And I drank to the lass that should have been mine

But now she is wed to another
The men of yon forest, they ask it of me
'How many strawberries grow in the salt sea?'
And I ask of them back with a tear in my eye
'How many ships sail in the forest?'
So, dig me a grave and dig it so deep
And cover it over with flowers so sweet
And I'll turn in for to take a long sleep
And maybe in time I'll forget her
So, they dug him a grave and they dug it so deep
And covered it over with flowers so sweet
And he's turned in for to take a long sleep
And maybe by now he's forgotten
