If A Body Meet A Body Comin Thro The Rye


If a body meet a body,
Comin’ thro the rye,
If a body kiss a body,
Need a body cry?

Ev’ry lassie has her laddie,
Nane, they say, ha’e I,
Yet a’ the lads they smile on me,
When comin’ thro’ the rye.

If a body meet a body,
Comin’ frae the town,
If a body greet a body,
Need a body frown?

Ev’ry lassie has her laddie,
Nane, they say, ha’e I,
Yet a’ the lads they smile on me,
When comin’ thro’ the rye.

Amang the train there is a swain I
Dearly love mysel’:
But what’s his name, or where’s his hame I
dinna choose to tell.

Ev’ry lassie has her laddie,
Nane, they say, ha’e I,
Yet a’ the lads they smile on me,
When comin’ thro’ the rye.
