The Rigs o' Barley

Written By: Robert Burns

The Rigs o' Barley


It was upon a Lammas night,
When corn rigs are bonie,
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.


Corn rigs, an barley rigs,
An corn rigs are bonie:
I'll ne'er forget that happy night,
Amang the rigs wi Annie.


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.



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.



I hae been blythe wi comrades dear;
I hae been merry drinking;
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.

Love among the barley.
