I's the B'y
Newfoundland Traditional Song
Performed by Andrew Queen


This song is available on Andrew Queen's "Alligator Tracks"

This song is also available on "Folk Songs"

I’s the b’y that builds the boat
And I’s the b’y that sails her
I’s the b’y that catches the fish
And brings ‘em home to Lizer

CHORUS
Hip yer partner, Sally Thibault
Hip yer partner, Sally Brown
Fogo, Twillingate, Moreton’s Harbour
All around the circle

Sods and rinds to cover your flake
Cake and tea for supper
Codfish in the spring o’ the year
Fried in maggotty butter

CHORUS

I don’t want your maggoty fish
That’s no good for winter
I could buy as good as that
Down in Bonavista

CHORUS

I took Lizer to a dance
And faith, but she could travel
Every step that she did take
Was up to her knees in gravel

CHORUS

I’s the b’y that builds the boat
And I’s the b’y that sails her
I’s the b’y that catches the fish
And brings ‘em home to Lizer

CHORUS
