Gae to the Kye Wi' Me Johnny cho: O, gae to the kye wi' me, Johnny, Gae to the kye wi' me, O, gae to the kye wi' me, Johnny, And I'll be merry wi' thee. And was she na' worthy of kisses And was she na' worthy of three, And was she na' worthy of kisses That gaed to the kye wi' me? I hae a hoose a-biggin, Anither that's like to fa', I hae a lassie wi' bairn Which grieves me warst of a'. But if she be wi' bairn As I trow weel she be, I have an auld mither at hame Will doudle it on her knee. From Folk Songs and Ballads of Scotland, MacColl First published in Herd's collection, 1776 RG
