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.
