Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Lea Boy's Lassie
Hi! Maybe this can help....

First when I came to town they ca´ed me young and bonny But now they´ve changed my name, Call me the Leaboy´s honey

I´ll dye my petticoats red And face them with the yellow I´ll tell the Dyster lads The Leaboy I´m tae follow

The black horse draws the cairt the blue ane follows sae bonny And sae weel I like the lad That drives them on sae canny

Well, heather beds are soft And painted rooms are bonny But I would leave them all Tae jove along with Johnny

Anjd oh my back is sore From shearing Craigie´s corn I will nae see him the niegh´ I´ll see him in the morn

And oh for Saturday night When I´ll see my dearie He´ll come whistlin´in When I am sad and weary

First when I came to town they ca´ed me proud and saucy But now they´ve changed my name, Call me the Leaboy´s Lassie

..I think this is the version sung by Anam...
