Comin Thro' the Rye (Third Version)1


O gin a body meet a body
Comin throu the rye;
Gin a body f--k a body ,
Need a body cry.

Comin' thro' the rye, my jo ,
An' comin' thro' the rye,
She fand a staun o' staunin' graith ,
Comin' thro' the rye.

Gin a body meet a body ,
Comin' thro' the glen;
Gin a body f--k a body ,
Need the warld ken .
