Traditional Lyrics

VERSE 1

F 
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,

C 
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,

    F 
Can you or I or anyone know

    C                      F 
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?

VERSE 2

F 
First the farmer sows his seed,

C 
Then he stands and takes his ease,

   F 
He stamps his foot and claps his hands

    C                F 
And turns around and views the land.

VERSE 3

F 
Waiting for a partner,

C 
Waiting for a partner,

 F 
Open the ring and choose one in,

      C            F 
While we all gaily dance and sing.
