I Once Loved a Lass

I once loved a lass, and I loved her so well
That I hated all others who spoke of her ill
And now she's rewarded me well for my love
She's gone to be wed to another.

When I saw my love go through the church door
With bride and bridemaidens, they made a fine show
And I followed them on with my heart full of woe
For now she is wed to another.

When I saw my love go 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
For 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 they 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.
