Ed Miller – The Shearin's No For You lyrics

Oh the shearin's no for you, my bonnie lassie oh
Oh the shearin's no for you, my bonnie lassie oh,
Oh the shearin's no for you, for yer back it winna boo,
And yer belly's rowan fu' my bonnie lassie oh.

Dae ye mind the banks o' Ayr, my bonnie lassie oh,
Dae ye mind the banks o' Ayr, my bonnie lassie oh,
Dae ye mind the banks o' Ayr, where my heart ye did
Ensnare,
And yer love ye did declare, my bonnie lassie oh.

Tak the ribbons frae yer hair, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the ribbons frae yer hair, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the ribbons frae yer hair, and let doon yer
Ringlets fair,

Ye've nocht noo but doul an' care, my bonnie lassie oh.

Tak the buckles frae yer shin, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the buckles frae yer shin, my bonnie lassie oh,
Tak the buckles frae yer shin, for ye've wed an unco
Loon
And yer dancin days are done, my bonnie lassie oh,

Chords: key

Verse/chorus:

Background: A Scottish agricultural song.

Winna boo: won't bend over; rowan fu: swelling full, ie
Pregnant; frae: from; nocht noo but doul an care:
Nothing now but hardship; shin: shoes; an unco loon: "a
Wild dude".
