Comin Through The Rye

Gin a body meet a body

Comin through the rye

Gin a body kiss a body

Need a body cry?


Chorus:

Ilka lassie has her laddie

Nane, they say, hae I

Yet aa the lads they smile at me

When comin through the rye


Gin a body meet a body

Comin through the toon,

Gin a body greet a body

Need a body froon?


Amang the train there is a swain

I dearly loe masel

But what's his name an where's his hame

I dinna care to tell


Gin a body meet a body

Comin frae the well

Gin a body kiss a body

Need a body tell?



Blialam say, "This version of the classic Burns song was prepared for the first ever Music School Burns Supper. There is a visual element to the live performance that you'll just have to imagine." They say the recording "features Goldilocks and the Three Bears with Whistlin' Swanee Ellis".

A song credited to Robert Burns, but perhaps one of the many he found and added to, about a lass who thinks about who she might meet while walking through the field of rye grain. She suggests she might have a secret admirer, or even admirers.
