Bonnie Blue Eyes


Goodbye my little bonnie blue eyes

Goodbye my little bonnie blue eyes

You've told me more lies than the stars in the skys

Goodbye my little bonnie blue eyes

 

I saw my little bonnie last night

She looked so dear to me

She's the only girl I ever loved

She's now gone back on me

 

Oh stand at the gate and weep

Oh stand at the gate and weep

Oh stand at the gate and weep and morn

Oh bonnie wont you love me once more

 

Come and lay your hand in mine

Come and lay your hand in mine

Come and lay your arms around my neck

And say that you will be mine

 

Oh you know what you promised me

Oh you know what you promised me

You promised that you'd marry me

Oh you know what you promised me

 

I've stayed in the country too long

I've stayed in the country too long

The only wrong that I have done

I've stayed in the country too long

 

Come and go with me too the train

Come and go with me too the train

Come and go with me and see me get on

Goodbye my little bonnie I'm gone
