Bobby Blue

Phyllis Martin from Dalbeattie: On Autumn Harvest ah010: Old Songs & Bothy Ballads: Hurrah Boys Hurrah! Live from the Fife Traditional Singing Festival May 2010.

1: Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue,
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue;
For the wind and the rain they will bring your faither hame,
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue.

2: For your faither, he went awa tae sea,
For your faither, he went awa tae sea;
For your faither was a sailor and he sailed upon a whaler,
And your faither, he went awa tae sea.

Chorus:
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue,
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue;
For the wind and the rain they will bring your faither hame,
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue.

3: For your faither was droonded in the sea,
For your faither was droonded in the sea;
For one cold and stormy night, his ship sank oot o sight,
And your faither was droonded in the sea.

Chorus:
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue,
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue;
For the wind and the rain they will bring your faither hame,
Stay awa frae the windae Bobby Blue.
