Roaring Jack - Lass From Yarrow lyrics

Under the bridge when you kissed me goodbye
I’d have kissed you right back if I wasn’t too shy
But the chance it was lost in the sweet bye and bye
And the big yin swept you away
I thought of you often when I was alone
The things I would say to make you my own
The way it came out was too close to the bone
And the big yin swept you away

Cap and scarf I’d cast away
Barefoot on a summer’s day
Picking berries on the brae
With the bonnie lass from Yarrow
Lie down on a bed of broom
Careful not to come too soon
On a Sunday afternoon
With a whiskey in the jar-o

On a Saturday night I was greased up and starched
Drunk at a dance at the Methodist church
I couldn’t say nothing I stood there and watched
And the big yin swept you away
He was smarter than me with the gift of the gob
Kicked out of school and twice round the block
I took a bus home and you went for a walk
With the big yin that swept you away

Cap and scarf I cast away…

I was taking it slow when it should have been fast
Getting it wrong when it should have been sussed
Losing my head in a bucket of piss
And watching you slipping away
I missed you like hell for a moment or two
I miss you right now but there’s nothing to do
I bid you good luck and a hell of a screw
With the big yin that swept you away
