Bobby Shafto’s Gone to Sea

“Bobby Shafto’s Gone to Sea” Song Lyrics

Bobby Shafto’s gone to sea,
Silver buckles at his knee;
He’ll come back and marry me,
Bonny Bobby Shafto!
Bobby Shafto’s bright and fair,
Panning out his yellow hair;
He’s my love for evermore,
Bonny Bobby Shafto!

An additional verse was added in by John Bell’s, Rhymes of Northern Bards in 1812:
Bobby Shafto’s getten a bairn,
For to dangle on his arm;
In his arm and on his knee,
Bobby Shafto loves me.
