SONG I.

IT WAS UPON A LAMMAS NIGHT.

AIR.-" CORN RIGS ARE BONNIL."

I.

It was upon a Lammas night,

When corn rigs are bonnie, Beneath the moon's unclouded light,

I held awa to Annie : The time flew by, wi' tentless heed,

Till 'tween the late and early ; Wi' sma' persuasion she agreed,

To see me thro' the barley.

II.
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 ken't her heart was a' my ain;

I lov'd her most sincerely ;
I kiss'd her owre and owre again

Amang the rigs o' barley.

III.
I lock'd 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 ay

shall bless that happy night, Amang the rigs o' barley.

IV.
I hae been blythe wi' comrades dear ;

I hae been merry drinkin;
I hae been joyfu' gath'rin gear ;

I hae been happy thinking:
But a' the pleasures e'er I saw,

Tho' three times doubl’d fairly, That happy night was worth them a',

Amang the rigs o' barley.
