Lyrics
As I came in by Tara Market
Tara Market for tae fee
I met up wi' a famer child.
The Barnyards o' Delgaty

Chorus:
Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-addy
Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-ee
Lin-tin-lowrin-lowrin-lowrin
The Barnyards of Delgaty

He promised me the ae best pair,
that ever I laid my eyes upon,
when I got to the barnyards,
there was nothin' there but skin and bone!

Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-addy
Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-ee
Lin-tin-lowrin-lowrin-lowrin
The Barnyards of Delgaty

The old grey horse sat on his rump,
the old white mare sat on her whine
when it came to the "Whup" and crack
they shouldn't rise at yokin' time.

Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-addy
Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-ee
Lin-tin-lowrin-lowrin-lowrin
The Barnyards of Delgaty

When I go to the kirk on Sunday
many's the bonny lass I see
sittin' by her father's side
and winkin' o'er the pews at me!

Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-addy
Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-ee
Lin-tin-lowrin-lowrin-lowrin
The Barnyards of Delgaty

And I can drink and not get drunk,
I can fight and not be slain
I can sleep with another man's wife
and still be welcome to my ayn.

Now my candle is burnt out
my snotter's fairly on the wane
fare the well ye Barnyards,
you'll never catch me here again!

Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-addy
Lin-tin-addy, too-rin-ee
Lin-tin-lowrin-lowrin-lowrin
The Barnyards of Delgaty
