In Hinnersonís Shadow


[Based on the old Scots saying, 'As hard as Hinnerson's erse']

Lyrics composed by John Henderson to the 1918 tune for
'I Found the End of The Rainbow', from all the ideas for its verses
supplied about 'Jake' by his cousin Mark Henshaw in NY, USA.

Musical Introduction

Here is a song 'bout a pal of mine,
Who could take a teasing without a whine.

Olí Hinnersonís rear-end was hard, so hard.
Twas ten times much harder than mere flint.
It wore out his 'breeks' as he walked or sat down,
For it followed him wherever he went.

Ol' Hinnerson went to live by the Med. a while
ĎNeath the tropical sun out there so kind.
And when he'd made his way down to the beach and the sea,
His rear-end always followed on behind.

If Ol' Hinnerson stayed out late some nights,
When it was so hard to get back home in the dark.
Then heíd strike his rear-end with a sharp iron rod,
And light his way back by the spark.

Olí Hinnersonís rear-end was hard, so hard.
Twas ten times much harder than mere flint.
It wore out his 'breeks' as he walked or sat down,
For it followed him wherever he went.

Brief Interlude

Olí Hinnersonís kilt it was fire-proof, it was,
As youíve guessed now it sure must have been.
For his wild-on-fire kilt round his flinty rear-end
Was the most awesome sight ever seen.

Olí Hinnersonís rear-end was hard, so hard.
Twas ten times much harder than mere flint.
It wore out his 'breeks' as he walked or sat down,
For it followed him wherever he went.

Olí Hinnerson one June flew high o'er the pond
To see all cold Alaskaís wildest sights.
His rear-end now so famous, of course tagged along
To bask in the Northern Lights.

The liner he sailed on the northern seas
Fell foul to the grip of the ice.
But with Hinnersonís rear-end cutting out a clean swathe,
The iced liner broke free in a trice.

Olí Hinnersonís rear-end was hard, so hard.
Twas ten times much harder than mere flint.
It wore out his 'breeks' as he walked or sat down,
For it followed him wherever he went.

Hinnersonís rear-end was hard, mighty hard,
But his heart was much softer always kind.
Lesser than he might have resented this song,
But I knew guid Olí Jake wouldn't mind.
