The rigs o' barley
C C C C It was upon a Lammas night C G7 When corn rigs are bonnie, C C Beneath the moon‘s unclouded light C G7 C C C I held awa to Annie: Am G F E7 The time flew by wi’ tentless heed, C G Till ‘tween the late and early F G C F F Wi’ sma’ persuasion she agreed C G7 G7 C G7 C To see me thro’ the barley, THE BARLEY The sky was blue, the wind was still, The moon was shining clearly; I set her down wi’ right good will Amang the rigs o’ barley; I kent her heart was a’ my ain; I loved her most sincerely; I kissed her owre and owre again Amang the rigs o’ barley I locked her in my fond embrace; Her heart was beating rarely; My blessings on that happy place Amang the rigs o’ barley ! But by the moon and stars so bright, That shone that hour so clearly, She aye shall bless that happy night Amang the rigs o’barley. I hae been blythe wi’ comrades dear I hae been merry drinking; I hae been joyfu’ gatherin’ gear; I hae been happy thinking: But a’ the pleasures e’er I saw, Tho’ three times doubled fairly, That happy night was worth them a’: Amang the rigs o’ barley. Corn rigs, an’ barley rigs, An’ corn rigs are bonnie: I’ll ne’er forget that happy night, Amang the rigs wi’ Annie.
