lyrics

Hold thy way, my bonny bairn,
Hold thy way up on my arm,
Hold thy way, thou soon may learn
to say Dada, so canny

I wish thy daddy may be well,
He’s long in coming from the keel,
Though his black face be like the devil,
I’d like a kiss from Johnny

Thou really has thy daddy’s chin,
Thou art like him, leg and wing,
And I, with pleasure, can thee sing,
Since thou belongs my Johnny

When daddy’s drunk, he’ll take his knife
And threaten sore to take my life,
Who wouldn’t be a keelman’s wife,
To have a man like Johnny

Hold thy way, my bonny bairn,
Hold thy way up on my arm,
Hold thy way, thou soon may learn
to say Dada, so canny

Newcastle based trio Bridie Jackson and The Arbour are an eclectic group of folk-influenced musicians. Hauntingly ethereal, yet fused with dark and powerful undertones; this eccentric ensemble inject contradictions galore, with their union of bright melody and sombre lyricism.

'Movingly soulful' (Telegraph)
'Seriously awesome' (For Folk's Sake)
