about

7. FINE FLOOERS IN THE VALLEY
TRAD. ARR. FRAME / VASS / MASSIE A version of the classic ballad The Cruel Mother.

lyrics

Fine flowers in the valley

She lay doon below a thorn,
Fine flowers in the valley,
And there she has her sweet babe born
And the green leaves they grow rarely.

Smile nae sae sweet, by bonnie babe
Fine flowers in the valley,
Ye smile sae sweet, ye'll smile me deid
And the green leaves they grow rarely.

She's taen out her wee penknife
Fine flowers in the valley,
And twinn'd the sweet babe o' its life,
And the green leaves they grow rarely.

She's howket a grave by the light o' the moon,
Fine flowers in the valley,
And there she's buried her sweet babe in,
And the green leaves they grow rarely.

As she was going to the church,
Fine flowers in the valley,
She saw a sweet babe in the porch,
And the green leaves they grow rarely.

O sweet babe and thou were mine,
Fine flowers in the valley,
It’s I’d clad thee in the silk so fine
And the green leaves they grow rarely.

O mother dear, when I was thine,
Fine flowers in the valley,
You did na prove to me sae kind,
And the green leaves they grow rarely.
