I would be terrifically grateful if someone would provide me with the lyrics to Jim Boyes Bringing in the Sheaves which is truly fab.

It's not on their web site., although there are some of their other somgs there.
I know McFAT's mate Ken sings the song, so if you see him about, he might be able to help you.
Quack!

What CD can it be found on then? I only know this song from the 1991 charity compilation "All Through The Year" and that via an unsolicited tape that someone made me, and I can't find it now... I'd love to hear it again.

BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES
(words by Rev. Knowles Shaw (1834-1878)
Tune by George Minor)

Chorus:
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves
We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves
We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves

Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve
Waiting for the harvest and the time of reaping
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves

Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows
Fearing neither clouds nor winter's chilling breeze
By and by the harvest and the labored end
We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves

Going forth with weeping, sowing for the master
Tho' the loss sustains our spirit often grieves
When our weeping's over, He will bid us welcome
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves


Has anyone got more info on the song? Why it was written, or if there's a story behind it?

Wrong song, Suzanne. Jim Boyes wrote his own words and uses a different tune. (but I prefer the old version)

Psalm 126.6, "He who goes out weeping," etc.

Is this old hymn, quoted above by Susanne, what is wanted here? See Cyberhymnal, with midi: Bringing
He wrote the words for a number of other hymns. Why was it written? I guess he would have said: "The Lord made me do it."

Does the Boyes version differ?

Typing hastily listening to a tape labelled "Ian's tape"... the chorus follows the pattern "Bringing in the sheaves, we're bringing in the sheaves, (last line of preceding verse)"

Though it's way past harvest time
Some still toil and work and ?????
Corn still stands in rank and line
And defies us all
We can see it in our past
Blood will out and joy will battle
Though we work in different ways we're bringing in the sheaves

(Chorus)

Though we started from the land
Some of us do roam abroad
The hand upon the gliding plough is not for everyone
Changing seasons help us see
Those who hear a different drummer
Though not in one harmony, we're bringing in the sheaves

(Chorus)

What lay dormant in the soil
Is wakened by the kiss of summer
So the fruits of yesteryear become the years new corn
Every stem has at its core, part of those who went before
In turn they will be kept in store by bringing the sheaves

(Chorus)

In conclusion bear in mind
What example has begun
What today you do in kind has power for everyone
True strong aims will pass along
To your daughters and your sons
So may they in years to come be bringing in the sheaves

(Chorus)

I've just checked with the songwriter to make sure I got it correct. The first two lines of 'Bringing in the Sheaves' is -

"Though it's way past harvest time
Souls still toil and waggons rattle..."

All the rest of Jennifer's transcription is spot on.

Thanks for your kind comments, which I'll pass on to Jim. If you'd like to buy either "Out' the Blue" or "Funny Old World" or any No Masters album, they're available via www.nomasters.co.uk.

Hi Georgina

The end of the first verse didn't ring true in Jennifer's post

Blood will out and joy will battle

so I checked Jim's CD notes and they state

Blood will out and join the battle

Which makes more sense. Mind you I've learnt that you can't trust CD notes (even the authors) as they may be what was written but not what was sung and I haven't checked Jim's singing.

There are a few other minor differences like "your" and "our" but CBS may well sing it slightly different to Jim solo.

Thanks for posting the correct lyrics, Jennifer et al. I posted what I found in my database but hadn't compared it to Jim's recording. (Any little mistakes will usually be corrected by diligent Mudcatters in no time.) I like the song very much, and CBS in general.

Thanks Kevin, you're quite right - I hadn't noticed that and one or two other minor differences. So to avoid further confusion (especially from me), here are the words as printed in the booklet for 'Funny Old World' - Georgina

BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES (Jim Boyes)

Though it's way past harvest time
Souls still toil and wagons rattle
Corn still stands in rank and line
And defies us all
We can see it in our past
Blood will out and join the battle
Though we work in different ways
We're bringing in the sheaves

Cho: Bringing in the sheaves
We're bringing in the sheaves
Though we work in different ways
We're bringing in the sheaves


Though we started from the land
Some do choose to roam abroad
The hand upon the gliding plough
Is not for everyone
Changing seasons help us see
That those who hear a different drummer
Though not in one harmony
Are bringing in the sheaves

Cho: Bringing in the sheaves
We're bringing in the sheaves
Though not in one harmony
Are bringing in the sheaves

What lay dormant in the soil
Is wakened by the kiss of summer
So the fruit of yesteryear
Becomes the year's new corn
Every stem has at its core
Part of those who went before
In turn they will be kept in store
By bringing in the sheaves

Cho: Bringing in the sheaves
We're bringing in the sheaves
In turn they will be kept in store
By bringing in the sheaves

In conclusion bear in mind
What example has begun
What you do today in kind
Has power for everyone
True strong aims will pass along
To our daughters and our sons
So may they in years to come
Be bringing in the sheaves

Cho: Bringing in the sheaves
We're bringing in the sheaves
So may they in years to come
Be bringing in the sheaves
