Comin’ through the rye

Lyrics

Gin a body meet a body
Comin’ through the rye
Gin a body kiss a body
Need a body cry
Ilka lassie has a laddie
Nane, they say, ha’e I
Yet a’ the lads they smile at me
When comin’ through the rye

Gin a body meet a body
Comin’ frae the well
Gin a body kiss a body
Need a body tell
Ilka lassie has a laddie,
Nane, they say, ha’e I
But all the lads they smile at me
When coming though the rye

Gin a body meet a body
Comin’ frae the town
Gin a body meet a body
Need a body frown
Ilka lassie has a laddie
Nane, they say, ha’e I
But all the lads they lo’e me weel
And what the waur am I

Amang the train there is a swain
I dearly lo’e mysel
But whaur his hame or what his name,
I dinna care to tell
Ilka lassie has a laddie
Nane, they say, ha’e I
But all the lads they lo’e me weel
And what the waur am I
