My Johnny was a shoemaker and dearly he loved me
My Johnny was a shoemaker but now he's gone to sea
With pitch and tar to soil his hands
He will sail across the sea, stormy sea
And sail across the stormy sea

His jacket was a deep sky-blue and curly was his hair
His jacket was a deep sky-blue, it was I do declare
And to reeve the top sails up against the mast
And to sail across the sea, stormy sea
He'll sail across the stormy sea

Some day he'll be a captain bold with a brave and 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 will come home and marry me

My Johnny was a shoemaker and dearly he loved me
My Johnny was a shoemaker but now he's gone to sea
With pitch and tar to soil his hands
He will sail across the sea, stormy sea
And sail across the stormy sea

(interlude)

My Johnny he made shoes and dearly he loved me,
With pitch all on his hands, he'll sail across the sea.
His jacket it was blue, curly hair had he,
He'll be a captain bold and sail across the sea.
Stormy sea, He'll sail across the stormy sea.
