Barrie's Trip Edinburgh
« on: Sunday 17 October 10 17:57 BST (UK) »
When I was a little girl my mother used to sing a song, and the only words I can remember are
'I'm no goin on Barrie's trip
I'm no going at all
I'm no goin on Barrie's trip
Because it always comes on rain'
I remember asking her about it, and all she could remember was that she thought it was a Church organised/or council organised trip for poor children which happened once a year in Edinburgh, but who Mr Barrie/Barry was, or if there was even a Mr Barry, she didn't know. I'd love to know if anyone recognises/remembers the song, and tell me more about it
