Come By Here

A somewhat different version of “Come By Here”, bu the tune is similar, which is also know as “Kumbya”.  The song “Kumbya” was written sometime in the 1920’s; there is dispute about the original composer.  There is no uncertainty however that the title Kumbya was a derivative od “Come by yer” or “Come by yah” as might have been said by the creole speaking peoples of the South Carolina Gullah Islands.  A story once circulated that Kumbya was an African word and that the song was African in origin.  THAT is not true; there is no African word kumbya that would be in any way relevant to this song
