———————————

i know where i'm going and i know who's going with me
i know who i love but the dear knows who i'll marry

some say he's dark and some say he's bonny
but the fairest of them all is my handsome, winsome johnny

i have stockings of silk and shoes of fine green leather
combs to buckle my hair and a ring for every finger

instrumental verse

i know where i'm going and i know who's going with me
i know who i love but the dear knows who i'll marry

feather beds are soft and painted rooms are bonny
but i would leave them all for my handsome, winsome johnny
