Ploughboy Lads


When she was only sixteen year
A beauty she was wearing
Ah little little did she think 
That she'd be soon a grievin oh oh

For the Ploughboy lads are gay braw lads
They'll court you and decieve you
Oh they'll take all and they'll gang awa'
And leave the lasses grievin, oh oh

If she'd stayed home when she was told
And done her mammy's bidden, oh
She not be sitting by yon fireside
Singin' hush abye my baby oh oh

For the Ploughboy lads are gay braw lads
They'll court you and decieve you
Oh they'll take all and they'll gang awa'
And leave the lasses grievin, oh oh

Haush abye, she's your ma,
But the Lord knows who's your daddy oh
So maids take care and be aware
Of the young man in the gloamin' oh oh

For the Ploughboy lads are gay braw lads
They'll court you and decieve you
Oh they'll take all and they'll gang awa'
And leave the lasses grievin, oh oh
