Coming thro' the rye - a poem by Robert Burns

 


Coming thro' the rye, poor body,
Coming thro' the rye,
She draiglet a' her petticoatie
Coming thro' the rye.

O, Jenny's a' wat, poor body;
Jenny's seldom dry;
She draiglet a' her petticoatie
Coming thro' the rye.

Gin a body meet a body
Coming thro' the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body
Need a body cry?

Gin a body meet a body
Coming thro' the glen,
Gin a body kiss a body 
Need the warld ken?
