It's Only My Auld Sheen (False Bride)

When I saw my ain bonnie lass doon tae the church go
Gold rings on her fingers white gloves on her hands
Gold rings on her fingers white gloves on her hands
She's awa' to be wed to another.

Says I, "Bonnie lass, could you nay wait awhile
For I think that you have been sairly beguiled
But I think that you have been sairly beguiled."
But she woudna, she's gane wi' another.

'Twas in helpin' tae pour out the brandies and wine
I drank tae the lassie that should have been mine
I drank tae the lassie that ought tae been mine
But she's only my auld sheen fin he gets her.

For she's broken my hert and forever left me
She's broken my hert and forever left me
But it's nay eence or twice that she's lain doon wi' me
She's there and she canna deny it.

The ladies and gentlemen asked o' me
How many black berries grow roon the salt sea
I gade aen back with a tear in my e'e
How many ships sail in the forest.

Gae dig me a grave and dig it sae deep
An' cover it ower wi' flooerets sae sweet
An' I tae lie doon an' tae tak a lang sleep
For that's the only wye I'll ever forget her.
