BAND OF SHEARERS

MELODY
CHORUS:
Bonnie lassie, will ye go,
And shear with me the whole day through?
And Love will cheer us as we go,
To join yon band of shearers.
3. And if the weather, it be hot,
I'll cast my waistcoat and my coat,
And shear wi' ye among the lot,
When we join yon band of shearers.
1. Now, summer days and heather bells,
Come reachin' o'er yon highland hills.
There's yellow corn in yonder fields,
And Autumn brings the shearin'.
4. And if the weather, it be dry,
They'll say there's love 'tween you and I.
And we'll slyly pass each other by,
When we join yon band of shearers.

CHORUS
2. And if the thistle, it be strong,
And if it jags thy milk-white hand,
It's wi' me hook I'll cut it doon,
When we join yon band of shearers.

CHORUS
5. And when the harvest is all done,
We'll have some rantin', rovin' fun.
We'll have some rantin', rovin' fun,
And forget the toil of shearin'.

CHORUS
