'Comin' Thro' the Rye' is a poem written in 1782 by Robert Burns (1759–1796). The words are put to the melody of the Scottish Minstrel 'Common' Frae The Town'. This is a variant of the tune to which 'Auld Lang Syne' is usually sung—the melodic shape is almost identical, the difference lying in the tempo and rhythm.

Origin and meaning[edit]

The ford across the Rye Water in Drakemyre, Dalry

G. W. Napier, in an 1876 Notes and Queries, wrote that,

The original words of 'Comin' thro' the rye' cannot be satisfactorily traced. There are many different versions of the song. The version which is now to be found in the Works of Burns is the one given in Johnson's Museum, which passed through the hands of Burns; but the song itself, in some form or other, was known long before Burns.[1]

The protagonist, 'Jenny', is not further identified, but there has been reference to a 'Jenny from Dalry' and a longstanding legend in the Drakemyre suburb of the town of Dalry, North Ayrshire, holds that 'comin thro' the rye' describes crossing a ford through the Rye Water at Drakemyre to the north of the town, downstream from Ryefield House and not far from the confluence of the Rye with the River Garnock.[2][3] When this story appeared in the Glasgow Herald in 1867, it was soon disputed with the assertion that everyone understood the rye to be a field of rye, wet with dew, which also fits better with other stanzas that substitute 'wheat' and 'grain' for 'rye'.[4] An alternative suggestion is that 'the rye' was a long narrow cobblestone paved lane, prone to puddles of water.[2]

While the original poem is already full of sexual imagery, an alternative version makes this more explicit. It has a different chorus, referring to a phallic 'staun o' staunin' graith' (roughly 'an erection of astonishing size'), 'kiss' is replaced by 'fuck', and Jenny's 'thing' in stanza four is identified as her 'cunt'.[5][6][7]

Catch A Body

O, Jenny's a' weet,[A] poor body,
Jenny's seldom dry:
She draigl't[B] a' her petticoatie,
Comin thro' the rye!
Chorus:
Comin thro' the rye, poor body,
Comin thro' the rye,
She draigl't a' her petticoatie,
Comin thro' the rye!
Gin[C] a body meet a body
Comin thro' the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need a body cry?[D]
(chorus)
Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro' the glen
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need the warl'[E] ken?[F]
(chorus)
Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro' the grain;
Gin a body kiss a body,
The thing's a body's ain.[G]
(chorus)

  • A weet – wet
  • B draigl't – draggled
  • C gin – given, in the sense of 'if'
  • D cry – call out [for help]
  • E warl – world
  • F ken – know
  • G ain – own

Lyrics usually sung ('Ilka lassie')[edit]

Even the 'cleaner' version of the Burns lyrics is quite bawdy, and it is this one, or an 'Anglized' version of it, that is most commonly 'covered'.

Gin a body meet a body
Comin' thro' the rye
Gin a body kiss a body
Need a body cry?
Chorus:
Ilka lassie has her laddie
Nane, they say, hae I
Yet a' the lads they smile at me
When comin' thro' the rye.
Gin a body meet a body
Comin' frae the town
Gin a body kiss a body
Need a body frown?
(Chorus)
Gin a body meet a body,
Comin' frae the well,
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need a body tell?
(Chorus)
'Mang the train there is a swain
I dearly lo'e myself
But what his name or whaur his hame
I dinna care to tell
(Chorus)

The Catcher in the Rye[edit]

The title of the novel The Catcher in the Rye (1951) by J. D. Salinger comes from the poem's name. Holden Caulfield, the protagonist, misinterprets a part of this poem to mean 'if a body catch a body' rather than 'if a body meet a body.' He keeps picturing children playing in a field of rye near the edge of a cliff, and him catching them when they start to fall off.[8]

Lyrics

Cover versions[edit]

  • The first recording of the song was made in 1912 by Marcella Sembrich.[9]
  • The song was covered by Marian Anderson in 1944
  • The song was covered by Bill Haley & His Comets in 1956 as 'Rockin' Through The Rye'.

In Sept 1956, when the record was climbing the UK charts, the single was banned by the BBC from its playlist because they felt the song went against traditional British standards. Nevertheless, the record peaked at No. 3 on the UK charts.
