Barbara Dickson - The Rigs O' Rye

CAPO: 3rd Fret


[VERSE 1:]
                   C7 F
'Twas in the month o' sweet July
  C                F           G
Before the sun had pierced the sky
      Em   C7        F       C
'Twas in between the rigs o' rye
     C7          F        G  C
That I heard twa lovers a-talkin'

[VERSE 2:]
                    C7 F
The lad said, "Lass I  must away
  C              F       G
I have no longer time to stay
        Em       C       F      C
Ah, but I've got word or two to say
 C7 F                  G  C
If  you've the time to tarry"

[VERSE 3:]
                        C7 F
"Your father loves you, he takes great care
     C                      F      G
Your mother combs down your yellow hair
         Em          C7         F       C
But your sisters say that ye'll get nae share
   C7          F     G    C
If ye gang wi' me, a stranger"

[VERSE 4:]
                    C7     F
"Let my father fret and my mother curse
   C                F     G
My sisters' words I do disown
       Em        C7         F       C
For if they were deid and below the ground
        C7       F     G    C
I would gang wi' ye, a stranger"

[VERSE 5:]
                         C7      F
It's then she chanced to see his linen fine
     C                      F          G
He's dried her tears and he kissed her syne
        Em      C7         F        C
Sayin' "Lassie, lassie, ye shall be mine
  C7      F      G   C
I said it all to try thee"

[VERSE 6:]
                   C7 F
This laddie being of  courage bold
  C                F          G
A lad scarcely nineteen years old
     Em         C7            F       C
He's ranged the hills and the valleys o'er
         C7        F      G   C
And he's ta'en his lassie wi' him

[VERSE 7:]
                 C7  F
This couple they got married noo
    C                  F       G
And they hae bairnies, one and two
     Em      C7          F      C
They live at Brechin the winter through
C7         F           G  C
And in Montrose in the summer
