Johnny Lad Guitar Chords And Song Lyrics-The Corries. A traditional song brought back to life by Ewan McColl in the 50's, it's known as ''A Street Song'' and that's why the words get changed depending who the singer is. The earlest reference dates it to the 1830s in the North Of Scotland. The reference to ''The Pill'' being banned by The Pope was most likely added during the 1960s. Also recorded by The Clancy Brothers And Tommy Makem.

Ah [G]bought a wife in Edinbourgh [C]fur a baw bee
And then I [d]got a penny back tae buy tabaccy G]wi'
And wi' you and wi' you and wi' [C]you, Johnny lad
I'll [D]dance the buckles off my shin wi' [D7]you my Johnny [G]lad

Now Samson was a michty man and he fed on fish and chips
He bauchled round the Gallowgate just pickin' up the dips
And wi' you and wi' you and wi' you, Johnny lad
I'll dance the buckles off my shin wi' you my Johnny lad

Now Solomon and David led very wicked lives
Winchin' every evening wi' other peoples wives
And wi' you and wi' you and wi' you, Johnny lad
I'll dance the buckles off my shin wi' you my Johnny lad

Every Catholic has our sympathy
They're really feeling ill
How can you love your neighbour
When the pope has banned the pill?
And wi' you and wi' you and wi' you, Johnny lad
I'll dance the buckles off my shin wi' you my Johnny lad

The Duke was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The Queen was in the treasury fiddling Scotland's money
And wi' you and wi' you and wi' you, Johnny lad
I'll dance the buckles off my shin wi' you my Johnny lad

Now Johnny was a bonnie lad until they took him in
He had his operation and now they call him Mary!
And wi' you and wi' you and wi' you, Johnny lad
I'll dance the buckles off my shin wi' you my Johnny lad
