Johnny Todd Johnny Todd, he took a notion For to cross the ocean wide And he's left his own true love behind him Walking by the Liverpool tide For a week, she wept with sorrow Tore her hair and wrung her hands Till she met another handsome sailor Walking by the Liverpool sands Fair young maid are you a weeping For your Johnny gone to sea If you'll wed with me tomorrow I will kind and constant be I will buy you sheets and blankets I'll buy you a wedding ring You shall have a silver cradle For to rock the baby in Johnny Todd came home from sailing Sailing on the ocean wide And he's found his fair and false one Was another sailor's bride All young men who go a sailing For to fight the foreign foe Do not leave your own true love like johnny Marry her before you go SOF
