Track 13: BONNIE BLUE EYES

Learned from the Randolph Collection (IV, 209-10) with verses added from "My Last Gold Dollar" (IV, 114.)

Good-bye little bonnie blue eyes 
Good-bye little bonnie blue eyes
I'll see you again but God knows when 
Good-bye little bonnie blue eyes.

I'm leavin' on the railroad train 
I'm leavin' on the railroad train
Oh I love you God knows I do
But I'm leavin' on the railroad train.

I'm goin' out west this fall 
I'm goin' out west this fall
I'm goin' out west I'll leave the one that I love best,
Little bonnie don't ya weep for me.

I'll sail on the ocean blue 
I'll sail on the ocean blue
On the ocean blue I'll think about you 
But I'll sail on the ocean blue.

Good-bye little bonnie blue eyes 
Good-bye little bonnie blue eyes
I'll see you again but God knows when 
Good-bye little bonnie blue eyes.

I must travel on down the line 
I must travel on down the line
I love you my dear and I want you near 
But I must travel on down the line.

Put your hand in mine
Just put your little hand in mine 
If you love me like I love you 
Just put your little hand in mine.

My last gold dollar is gone 
My last gold dollar is gone
My board bill's due and my whiskey bill is too 
But my last gold dollar is gone.

Back to first verse.
