"Bonny Hielan' Laddie" as written by and Dave Guard Joe Hickerson....
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

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

Hey, ho, and away we go,
Bonny laddie, hielan' laddie
Hey, ho, and away we go,
Bonny hielan' laddie

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

Hey, ho, and away we go,
Bonny laddie, hielan' laddie
Hey, ho, and away we go,
Bonny hielan' laddie

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.

Hey, ho, and away we go,
Bonny laddie, hielan' laddie
Hey, ho, and away we go,
Bonny hielan' laddie

Bonny hielan' laddie
Bonny hielan' laddie
