A hundred years ago, so the old folk say The body of a babe was found where it lay Wrapped in shawl of seaweed, washed up on the shore Robbed of mother's love..... for evermore A meeting it was held, and the minister declared We must find the mother, no effort shall be spared The unmarried women, from the land and from the town Must be brought unto the kirk, where the truth will be found                      CHORUS O mother mine, I am all forlorn Cast into the sea when I was born Forever winter, under the icy waves till I will snuggle warm to your breast again The women were lined up & the midwife watched them well From their face & their demeanor, she was sure she could tell But no-one shed a tear, nor shame was there betrayed So the minister he ordered that the body be displayed                        CHORUS The babe was passed along...now the tears did flow! As the tiny fragile body reached the hindmost of the row And this was Mary Taylor, where the wee thing came to rest Then the ghost of it broke free and it suckled at her breast O mother mine, I’m so warm Held fast to your breast where I belong Winter is over now that we are one As I snuggle warm to your breast again
