Subject: RE: Chord Req: Lambs in the Greenfield (Emmylou Harris
The men o' the forest askit o' me
Saying 'how many strawberries grow in the saut sea?
I answered them back wi' a tear in my ee
'How many ships sail in the forest?'

from ' I aince Lov'd a Lass' (not sure where this version of The Fause Bride) came from, was sung by the Corries back in my young days.

Not the 'Niel Gow' tune adaptation that Gordeanna McCulloch/the Clutha used for their Scottish version of the song/ballad
(When I saw my bonnie love tae the kirk go
Wi' bride and bride-maidens they made a fine show
And I followed on wi' a hert fu' of woe
For she'd gaen tae be wad tae anither)
