MORMOND BRAES



As I went doon to Strichen toon,
I heard a fair maid mourning,
And she was making sair complaint
For her true love ne'er returning.

Chorus

So fare ye weel, ye Mormond Braes,
Where often I've been cheery;
Fare ye weel ye Mormond Braes,
For it's there I lost my dearie.

***********

I”ll put on a gown o’ green
It’s the forsaken’s token
Tae tell the laddies roond aboot
That the bonds of love are broken

Chorus

***********

There's many a horse has snappert an' fa'en
And risen again fu' rarely.
There's many a lass has lost her lad
And gotten another right early.

Chorus

***********

There's as good fish into the sea
As ever hae been taken.
I'll cast my line and I'll try again
For I'm only ainst forsaken.

Chorus

***********

So I'll go doon to Strichen toon,
Where I was bred and born in,
And there I'll find another sweetheart
Will marry me in the mornin'

Chorus

Chorus
