Kingston Trio — Bonny Hielan' Laddie lyrics

Joe Hickerson/Dave Guard

Was you ever in Quebec, bonny laddie, hielan' laddie, stowing timber on the deck, bonny hielan' laddie.
Was you ever in Dundee, bonny laddie, hielan' laddie, there some pretty ships you'll see, bonny hielan' laddie.

Chorus:
Hey, ho, and away we go, bonny laddie, hielan' laddie.
Hey, ho, and away we go, bonny hielan' laddie.

This Boston town don't suit my notion and I'm bound for far away.
So, I'll pack my bag and sail the ocean and I'll see you on another day.

Was you ever in Mobile Bay, bonny laddie, hielan' laddie, loading cotton by the day, bonny hielan' laddie.
Was you ever 'round Cape Horn, bonny laddie, hielan' laddie, with the Lion and the Unicorn, bonny hielan' laddie.

[Chorus:]

One of these days and it won't be long and I'm bound for far away.
You'll take a look around and find me gone and I'll see you on another day.

Was you ever in Monterey, bonny laddie, hielan' laddie, on that town with three months pay, bonny hielan' laddie.
Was you ever in Aberdeen, bonny laddie, hielan' laddie, prettiest girls that you've ever seen, bonny hielan' laddie.

[Chorus:]

Farewell, dear friends, I'm leaving soon and I'm bound for far away.
We'll meet again this coming June and I'll see you on another day.

[Chorus:]
