Lyrics

a) following the Highland Widow's Lament as Howie flies over and lands

It was upon a Llamas night when corn rigs are bonny beneath the moon's unclouded light I held awhile to Annie the time went by with careless heed  til 'tween the late and early with small persuasion she agreed to see me through the barley

Corn rigs and barley rigs And corn rigs are bonny I'll not forget that happy night  among the rigs with Annie

b) A chorus is repeated as we watch a man on horseback ride past the houses by the harbor.

Corn rigs and barley rigs And corn rigs are bonny I'll not forget that happy night  among the rigs with Annie

c) We hear more as Howie walks around village

The sky was blue, the wind was still the moon was shining clearly I set her down  with right good will among the rigs of barley I ken't her heart was a' my ain;  I loved her most sincerely I kissed her oer and oer again among the rigs of barley

d) We hear more as Howie rides the trap to Lord Summerisle's castle.

Corn rigs and barley rigs And corn rigs are bonny I'll not forget that happy night  among the rigs with Annie
