Green Grow The Rashes O  Robert Burns

[C]There's nought but care on ev'ry han',
In ev'ry hour that passe[E]s, O;
What [F]signifies the life o' man,  [C]
An' [Am]'twere na for [E]the lasses, O.

[C] Green grow the rashes, O;
Green grow the rashes, O[E];
The s[F]weetest hours that e'er I sp[C]end,
Are [Am]spent amang th[E]e lasses, O.

[C]The warly race may riches chase,
An' riches still may fly[E] them, O;
An' t[F]ho' at last they catch them [C]fast,
Thei[Am]r hearts can n[E]e'er enjoy them, O.

[C] Green grow the rashes, O;
Green grow the rashes, O[E];
The s[F]weetest hours that e'er I sp[C]end,
Are [Am]spent amang th[E]e lasses, O.

[C]                                     
But gie me a canny hour at e'en,
My arms about my Dearie,[E] O;
An' w[F]arly cares an' warly men,   [C]
May [Am]a' gae tapsalt[E]eerie, O!
[C] Green grow the rashes, O;
Green grow the rashes, O[E];
The s[F]weetest hours that e'er I sp[C]end,
Are [Am]spent amang th[E]e lasses, O.
[C]For you sae douse, ye sneer at this,
Ye're nought but sensele[E]ss asses, O;
The w[F]isest Man the warl' saw,    [C]
He d[Am]early lov'd th[E]e lasses, O.
[C] Green grow the rashes, O;
Green grow the rashes, O[E];
The s[F]weetest hours that e'er I sp[C]end,
Are [Am]spent amang th[E]e lasses, O.


[C]Auld Nature swears, the lovely Dears
Her noblest work she cla[E]sses, O;
Her p[F]rentice han' she try'd on ma[C]n,
An' [Am]then she made [E]the lasses, O.
[C] Green grow the rashes, O;
Green grow the rashes, O[E];
The s[F]weetest hours that e'er I sp[C]end,
Are [Am]spent amang th[E]e lasses, O.
