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 (Transcribed by Bill Huntley & Mel Priddle) (Contributed by Bill Huntley - November 2006)
