Subject: 'Leaning' lyric search
From: GUEST,George
Date: 22 Jul 07 - 09:08 AM

There was a song I heard years ago by Ian Wallace on "My Music" and I'm pretty sure it was called "Leaning" And NO! I don't mean "Leaning On The Lamp post" OK ALL??!!

I only remember a bit of the lyric and would like to know the song's history and get the complete lyrics. The chorus started thus:-

"I'm leaning on the gate beside the pond
That lies beside the hedge where my old dog do lie
It's just across from there I see
The sunlight glinting through the trees".... etc

Hope someone remembers this song and can help.

AND PS: IT'S NOT "LEANING ON THE LAMP POST" OK!!!

LEANIN'
(Hugh E. Wright / Thomas Case Sterndale Bennett)
Harold Williams - 1926

Sowin's pretty good
Reapin' ain't so bad
Scarin' off the crows
Suits a farmer's lad
But if you ask'es me
The thing that suits a fellow
Is a little bit of straw to suck
To keep your fancies mellow


When you're leanin' on the gate beside
The pond that lies beside the side
Of farmer's stacks of new mown hay
It's just atwix the ricks
Beside the barn where farmers sticks inside
The chicks he only hatch'd today
Leanin', leanin'
I'm champion down our way, they say
At leanin' on the gate beside the pond that lies beside
The side of farmer's stacks of new mown hay
That he's been gleanin'
While I've been leanin' ..... all day


Had a lurcher once
Better than a gal
Poacher? Well, a bit
But 'e was a pal
Now there's just a mound
Underneath the el-lum
Reckon folks would laugh at I
If I was to tell 'em...


Why I'm leanin' on the gate beside the pond that lies beside
The side the hedge where my old dog would play
It's just a'cos from there I see the sunlight
Glintin' through the tree
Upon the grave where 'e do lie
Sleepin', sleepin'
Goodbye is hard to say
That's why
I'm leanin' on the gate beside the pond that lies beside
The side of farmer's stacks of new-mown hay
And at the gleanin'
He'll find me leanin' ..... all day

Well, OK, then, Lead. I am a Google Smart Arse.

Does that make me the Wicked Witch of the West then?
