My Johnny was a shoemaker and dearly he loved me My Johnny was a shoemaker and now he's gone to sea With pitch and tar to soil his hands And to sail across the sea ... stormy sea and sail across the stormy sea His jacket was a deep sky blue and cloudy was his hair His jacket was a deep sky blue, it was, I do declare For to reive the topsail up against the mast And to sail across the sea, stormy sea and sail across the stormy sea Some day he'll be a captain bold with a brave and a gallant crew Some day he'll be a captain bold with a sword and spy-glass too And when he has his gallant captain's sword He'll come home and marry me, marry me, he'll come home and marry me He'll come home and marry me
