Wiki article on Bobby Shaftoe



C                     G7
Bobby Shaftoe's getten a bairn,
For to dangle on his arm;
In his arm and on his knee,
C       G7                C
Bobby Shaftoe loves me.

Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea,
Silver buckles at his knee;
He'll come back and marry me,
Bonny Bobby Shaftoe!

Bobby Shaftoe's bright and fair,
Panning out his yellow hair;
He's my love for evermore,
Bonny Bobby Shaftoe!
