I (G)ken ye dinna (Em)like it, lass,
Tae (C)winter here in (Am)toon
For the (G)scaldies aye mis(Em)cry us
And they (D)try tae put us (D7)doon
But it's (D)hard to raise three (D7)bairns
In a (C)single flea-box (G)room
But I'll (C)tak' ye (Am)on the (G)road a(Em)gain
When (D)yellow's (D7)on the (G)broom

 

When (D)yellow's on the (D7)broom
When (G)yellow's on the (Em)broom
I'll (C)tak' ye (Am)on the (G)road a(Em)gain
When (D)yellow's (D7)on the (G)broom

 

The (G)scaldies cry us (Em)'tinker dirt'
And (C)sconce our bairns in (Am)school
Who (G)cares what a (Em)scaldy thinks
For a (D)scaldy's but a (D7)fool
He (D)never heard the (D7)yarlin's song
Nor (C)seen the flax in (G)bloom
For (C)they're a' (Am)cooped up in (G)hooses (Em)
When (D)yellow's (D7)on the (G)broom

(Bridge: D-D7-G-G   D-D7-G-G)

 

No (G)sale for pegs or (Em)baskets, noo
So (C)just to stay a(Am)live
We (G)have tae work at (Em)scaldy jobs
Frae (D)nine o'clock till (D7)five
But we (D)call no man our (D7)master
For we (C)own the world's (G)room
And we'll (C)bid fare(Am)weel tae (G)Brechin(Em)
When (D)yellow's (D7)on the (G)broom

I'm (G)weary for the (Em)springtime
When we’ll (C)tak' the road yince (Am)mair
For the (G)plantin' and the (Em)pearlin'
And the (D)berry fields of (D7)Blair
We'll (D)meet up wi' oor (D7)kinfolk
From (C)a' the country (G)roon'
When the (C)gana(Am)boot folk (G)tak' the (Em)road
And the (D)yellow's (D7)on the (G)broom

 

When (D)yellow's on the (D7)broom
When (G)yellow's on the (Em)broom

The (C)gana(Am)boot folk (G)tak' the (Em)road
And the (D)yellow's (D7)on the (G)broom

 

When (D)yellow's on the (D7)broom
When (G)yellow's on the (Em)broom
I'll (C)tak' ye (Am)on the (G)road a(Em)gain
When (D)yellow's (D7)on the (G)broom
