JOHNNY TODD

Johnny Todd
(Ecosse - Interprété par ANGUS AIRD. Droits réservés)

1/Johnny Todd he took a notion
For to sail upon the sea
And he left his own dear Jeanie
Weeping on the Greenock pier

Refrain:
Weep nae mair my awn dear Jeanie
Take your bairn upon your knee.
I'll be back and wee'll be married
Doon along the Greenock pier

2/ Johnny's gone in search of riches
For Australia he is bound
Handsome in his canvas britches
Off to sail the world around

Ref:
Weep nae mair............

3/ Many's the winter nights she's waited
For a ship out in the bay
Friends may say that she's forsaken
But she still can hear him say

Ref:Weep nae mair..............


4/ Then one morning bright and early
In the springtime of the year
A ship is sailing in the harbour
Bringing Johnny tae his dear

Ref: Weep nae mair............
