World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 26th January – ‘My Johnny was a Shoemaker’ led by Bella Hardy

*If you would like to pay for choir sessions, please donate to our Young Musician Instrument Bursary Fund: https://donorbox.org/womchoir*

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but if you would like the notation it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

This live choir is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: My Johnny was a Shoemaker

(Traditional)

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
And to 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
For to reive the topsails up against the mast
And to sail across the sea, stormy sea
And sail across the stormy sea

 

Some day he’ll be a captain bold with a brave and a gallant crew
Some day he’ll be a captain bold with a sword and spy-glass too
And when he has a gallant captain’s sword
He’ll come home and marry me, marry me
He’ll come home and marry me
