As I went o'er yon meadow,|
And carelessly passed along
I listened with pleasure to Jeannie
Mournfully singing this song.
O, the muckin' o' Geordie's byre,
And swilling the drain so clean
It's caused me to spend the night sleepless,
And brought the salt tears to my e'en.
2. O it wasn't my father's intention,
3. My brothers upbraid me daily|
For being with Geordie so free.
My sisters they call me hoodwinked
Because he's below my degree.
4. Though the days be ever so dreary,
5. And it's well do I love my Geordie,
