Lyrics

As I came thro' Sandgate,
Thro' Sandgate, thro' Sandgate,
As I came thro' Sandgate,
I heard a lassie sing:
     'O, weel may the keel row,
     The keel row, the keel row,
     O weel may the keel row
     The boat my laddie's in.'
   

'O wha's like my Johnnie,
Sae leish, sae blithe, sae bonnie?[8]
He's foremost 'mang the mony[9]
Keel lads o' coaly Tyne;
'O, weel may the keel row,
     The keel row, the keel row,
     O weel may the keel row
     The boat my laddie's in.'


As I came thro' Sandgate,
Thro' Sandgate, thro' Sandgate,
As I came thro' Sandgate,
I heard a lassie sing:
     'O, weel may the keel row,
     The keel row, the keel row,
     O weel may the keel row
     The boat my laddie's in.'
