Here you are Barbara ..... It's a grand song

PLOUGHMAN LADS

Down yonder glen there's a ploughman lad
And some summer day he'll be all my own
Singing Laddie-I, and sing Laddie-O
Ploughman lads are all the go.

I'll love his face, I'll love his skin,
I'll love the very cut he harrows in
Singing Laddie-I, and sing Laddie-O
Ploughman lads are all the go.

Down yonder glen, could've gotten a miller
But all his dust would have made us choke
Singing Laddie-I, and sing Laddie-O
Ploughman lads are all the go.

Down yonder glen, could've gotten a merchant,
All of his goods were not worth a groat
Singing Laddie-I, and sing Laddie-O
Ploughman lads are all the go.

Oh see him coming down from the town,
With all of his ribbons hanging down
Singing Laddie-I, and sing Laddie-O
Ploughman lads are all the go.

Sing Laddie-I, and sing Laddie-O
Ploughman lads are all the go.
