Comin' Thro' the Rye
anonymous, attr. Robert Burns

'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.' —G. W. Napier, in an 1876 edition of Notes and Queries.
