GONE THE RAINBOW Lyrics - Peter, Paul & Mary



Review The Song (2)


Shule, shule, shule-a-roo,
Shule-a-rak-shak, shule-a-ba-ba-coo.
When I saw my Sally Babby Beal,
come bibble in the boo shy Lorey.

Here I sit on Buttermilk Hill;
who could blame me, cry my fill;
Every tear would turn a mill,
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

Shule, shule, shule-a-roo,
Shule-a-rak-shak, shule-a-ba-ba-coo.
When I saw my Sally Babby Beal,
come bibble in the boo shy Lorey.

I sold my flax, I sold my wheel,
to buy my love a sword of steel;
So it in battle he might wield,
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

Shule, shule, shule-a-roo,
Shule-a-rak-shak, shule-a-ba-ba-coo.
When I saw my Sally Babby Beal,
come bibble in the boo shy Lorey.

Oh my baby, oh, my love,
gone the rainbow, gone the dove.
Your father was my only love;
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

Shule, shule, shule-a-roo,
Shule-a-rak-shak, shule-a-ba-ba-coo.
When I saw my Sally Babby Beal,
come bibble in the boo shy Lorey.

Hadn't heard this song in years | Reviewer: irisheyes54 | 6/21/2008

I remember this song from the 60s and sang it for years not knowing what the lyrics meant. I've since learned versions by Clannad and Celtic Woman and the gaelic version is completely different. anyone know if Peter, Paul and Mary's version is a phonetic gaelic version? I'm confused.



At last | Reviewer: Sue Down | 10/23/2007

I first heard this record in the 60's and fell in love with it. I have looked for it with no success,but recently downloaded Limewire and found that someone else liked it too. I then looked for lyrics and found this site. The words are spot on. Many thanks. You have made my week!
