American Ballads and Folk Songs
THE RIO GRANDE*
Oh, Johnny came over the other day,
Way, Rio! Oh, Johnny came over the other day,
For we're bound for the Rio Grande!
Chorus:
Way, Rio!
Way, Rio!
Sing fare you well, my bonny brown gal,
For we're bound for the Rio Grande!
*Thc tune and the first three stanzas are quoted from Ballads and Sea Songs from Nova Scott*, by Roy W. Mackenzie (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press); the final three stanzas, from Capstan Bars, by David W. Bone (New York: Harcourt, Brace and Co.).
