Drumshanty Lyr Req: My Bonnie Boy in Blue (7) Lyr Req: Bonny boy in blue 07 May 06


At Dunfermline Folk Club last Wednesday, I was lucky enough to hear Sylvia Barnes for the very first time. What a voice!

Anyway, that aside, she sang a song that she said was Irish and I didn't catch the title, and I didn't catch her to ask her about it either.

The chorus started with the line "Oh dear me" and there was a Johnny involved and the last line of the chorus is something like "My bonny boy in blue". It's a girl singing for her sailor.

I've not found anything in the DigiTrad or Forum, and Google's been precious little help too.

Anyone know the words and/or any recordings of it?
