GREEN GROW THE RASHES 1811 There's nought but care on ev' ry han', In ev' ry hour that 4 2 pass es, O; What sig ni fies the life o' man, And 'twer na for the lass es, O. Green grow the rash es, O; Gree grow the rash es, O: The sweet est hours that e'er I spent, Were spent a mang the lass es, O. 2. The war'ly race may riches chase, And riches still may fly them, O, And tho' at last they catch them fast, Their hearts can ne'er enjoy 'them,' O: Green grow, &c. 3. Gie me a canny hour at e'en, My arms about my dearie, O, And war'ly cares, and war'ly men, May a' gae tapsalteerie, O. Green grow, &c. 4. For you sae douce, wha sneer at this, Ye're nought but senseless asses, O; The wisest man the warld e'er saw, He dearly lo'ed the lasses, O. Green grow, &c. 5. Auld nature swears, the lovely dears. Her noblest work she classes, O; Her 'prentice han' she tried on man, And then she made the lasses, O. Green grow, &c, www.abcnotation.com/tunes
