MY PRETTY JANE
 
div
 
My Pretty Jane, my pretty Jane
Ah, never look so shy
But meet me, meet me in the ev'ning
While the bloom is on the Rye
The spring is waning fast, my love
The corn is in the ear
The summer nights are coming, Love
The Moon shines bright and clear
Then pretty Jane, my dearest Jane
Ah, never look so shy
But meet me, meet me in the ev'ning
While the bloom is on the Rye.

But name the day, the wedding day
And I will buy the ring
The Lads and Maids in favour white
And village bells shall ring
Or the bells shall peal love's rondelay
And village maids shall sing)
The spring is waning fast, my love
The corn is in the ear
The summer nights are coming, Love
The Moon shines bright and clear
Then pretty Jane, my dearest Jane
Ah, never look so shy
But meet me, meet me in the ev'ning
While the bloom is on the Rye.
