This is the other verse from memory:

Yes I have seen your bonny lad
It's on the seas you'll find him
His grave is green but not with grass
And you'll never lie beside him

See also this page for information on the song Maa Bonny Lad (mainlynorfolk site).

I think there's only the 2 verses. I think Johnny Handle recorded used to sing it. It might have been on Along The Coaly Tyne or The Bonnie Pit Laddie records (I'll check in a little while - I haven't got the vinyl on the computer). It's also on Tomorrow's Tide by Salt of The Earth (Barry/Ingrid Temple + Danny/Joyce McLeod) (and does Anni Fentiman sing it too?).
