Thread Name: Need grace (thanks for food) songs
Subject: RE: Need grace (thanks for food) songs
A Scottish songer/songriter I knew put the Selkirk grace to music (Possibly a traditional tune). For the life of me I can't remember his name! Iain something I think but can't be sure. I can't remember the verses he used either but he used the grace itself as a chorus.

The grace is -

Some hae meat and canna eat,
and some wad eat that want it,
but we hae meat and we can eat,
and sae the Lord be thankit.

I can't do the music bit here but if you get in touch I can sing it down the 'phone at you!

Cheers
