Subject: Lyr Req: The Rue and the Thyme
From: GUEST,Bee-Jay
Date: 14 Sep 10 - 09:11 AM

chorus:
Oh rue, oh rue, oh rue is in prime,
Oh ye'll pull the red rose, I will pull the rue in time.
verse:
There's a rose in yon garden is now in full bloom
Has been spreading and growing, it will soon be a tree,
I reached right in tae it the red rose to find,
But a thorn pricked my finger and I left it behind.

Can someone complete this song for me please?

Hi
It's in the digitrad if you search for 'Rue and Thyme 2'. I'm useless at links but have cut and pasted it below:

RUE AND THYME (2)

There's a rose in yon gairden that's newly sprung in bloom
Wi' spreadin' and growin' it blooms a' aroond
I reached richt intae it, the reid rose tae find
But a thorn pricked my finger and I left it behind

Cho: O rue! O rue! The rue is in prime
And it's ye'll pu' the reid rose and I'll pu' the thyme

For I aince loved him dearly but noo him disdain
For the langer I loved him the falser he became
For the langer I loved him the saucier he grew
And it's noo I must tell him that it's time for tae rue

And it's ye'll pu' the reid rose, I'll pu' the rue and thyme
For since ye've been unfaithfu', sae will I be unkind
And it's ye'll drink tae yer auld love and I'll drink tae mine
So here's a health tae the laddie that's maist on my mind

For I can love little and I can love long
And I can love an auld love till a new yin comes along
I only said I loved him his mind for tae ease
And it's when his back is tae me, I can love who I please

This is the Maureen Jelks version transcribed from her Tradition Bearers album "
Eence Upon a Time"
