Listen to the song here

The song will play in a new window allowing you to follow the words
as you listen to the song.
Sung by The Livingstone Trio
I've heard the liltin,
at the ewe milkin, Lassies a-liltin before the dawn oday;
Now they are
moaning on ilka green loaning, "The Flooers o the Forest are a' wede awa".
At e'en in the gloamin, nae younkers are
stacks wi' the lasses at bogle to play. But ilk quine sits drearie, lamentin her
flooers o the forest are a' wede awa.
Dool an wae the order
"Then gone lads tae the Border!" The English there fur yince by guile wan
the day. The
flooers o the forest, that fought aye the foremost, The prime o oor lan are cauld in the clay.
