Bat Goddess Trad Songs to Help a Heartbroken Friend? (36) RE: Trad Songs to Help a Heartbroken Friend? 22 May 18


Mormond Braes

Chorus
Fare thee well, ye Mormon Braes,
where oft times I've been cheery.
Fare thee well, ye Mormon Braes,
For it's there I've lost my dearie.

As I went in by Strachen Toon
I heard a fair maid mournin.
She was makin sair complaint
For her true love ne'er returnin.
Chorus

Thar's mony a horse haes slipped an fell
And risen again richt early.
Thar's mony a lass has lost her lad
An got anither richt rarely.

chorus

Thar's as guid fish in tae the sea
As ever yet were taken.
A cast ma nets and try again,
For I am anely ance forsaken.

chorus

Sae A will put on my gown o green,
As A forsaken told him.
And we'll let the young lad know
that the bonds of love are broken.

chorus

Sae A'll gang back to Strachen Toon
Whaur A wis bred an born in,
An A will get another young lad
Tae marry me in the mornin.
