My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean







My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean

My bonnie lies over the ocean,
My bonnie lies over the sea,
My bonnie lies over the ocean,
O bring back my bonnie to me.

cho: Bring Back, bring back
O bring back my bonnie to me, to me.
Bring Back, bring back
O bring back my bonnie to me.

O blow ye winds over the ocean
O blow ye winds over the sea;
O blow ye winds over the ocean
And bring back my bonnie to me.

Last night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay on my bed;
Last night as I lay on my pillow
I dreamed my poor bonnie was dead

The winds have blown over the ocean,
The winds have blown over the sea;
The winds have bloen over the ocean
And brought back my bonnie to me.

About 'My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean'



Artist:
Trad. (biography)
The Artist:
Traditional Music of unknown author.
Composed:unknown
Info: The origin of the song is unknown, though it is often suggested that the subject of the song may be Charles Edward Stuart ('Bonnie Prince Charlie'):[1] after the defeat of the Prince at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and his subsequent exile, his Jacobite supporters could have sung the tune in his honour; and thanks to the ambiguity of the term "bonnie", which can refer to a woman as well as to a man, they could pretend it was a love song.
