The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Bring Back My Blue Eyed Boy [core]

'Tis true, the ring that has no 5 end
It's hard to find a faithful 1 friend
And when you find one, just and 4 true
Change 5 not the old one for the 1 new

Bring back my blue eyed boy to me
Bring back my blue eyed boy to me
Bring back my blue eyed boy to me
That I may ever happy be

Must I go bound and him go free
Must I love the boy that don't love me
Or must I act the childish part
And love the boy that broke my heart

Last night, my lover promised me
To take me across the deep blue sea
And now he's gone and left me alone
An orphan girl without a home

Oh, dig my grave both wide and deep
Place marble at my head and feet
And on my breast a snow white dove
To show to the world I died for love

It’s on Strum Machine!
