"The Fisher Boy"

One of the songs that's been going around and round in my head. Lyrics courtesy sovay:

Oh, the bonny fisher boy
That brings the fishes from the sea
Oh, the bonny fisher boy
The fisher boy got hold of me

On Bamboroughshire's rocky shore
Just as you enter Boumer Raw
There lives the bonny fisher boy
The fisher boy that beats them all

Oh, the bonny fisher boy
That brings the fishes from the sea
Oh, the bonny fisher boy
The fisher boy got hold of me

My mother sent me out one day
To gather cockles from the sea
Before I had been long away
The fisher boy fell in with me

A sailor I will never marry
Nor soldier for he's got no brass
But I will have a fisher boy
Because I am a fisher's lass

Oh, the bonny fisher boy
That brings the fishes from the sea
Oh, the bonny fisher boy
The fisher boy got hold of me

On Bamboroughshire's rocky shore
Just as you enter Boumer Raw
There lives the bonny fisher boy
The fisher boy that beats them all
