my bonnie lies over the ocean original song


Chorus: Bring back, bring back, O bring back my Bonnie to me, to me: Bring back, bring back, O bring back my Bonnie to me. Although the song's origin is uncertain, its original subject could possibly be Charles Edward Stuart ('Bonnie Prince Charlie'): after the defeat of the Prince at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and his subsequent exile, his Jacobite supporters could have sung this song or one like it in his honour; and thanks to the ambiguity of the term "Bonnie", which can refer to a woman as well as to a man, they could pretend it was a love song. My Bonnie lies over the ocean My Bonnie lies over the sea, My Bonnie lies over the ocean, Oh bring back my Bonnie to me. Repeat chorus. Lyrics to 'My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean' by John Mcdermott. My Bonnie lies over the ocean, O bring back my Bonnie to me. O blow ye winds over the ocean, O blow ye winds over the sea. O blow ye winds over the ocean, And bring back my Bonnie to me.
