Thread Name: Origin: Bonny Ship the Diamond
Subject: RE: Bonny Ship the Diamond source?
The version I remember hearing a lot in the 60s was sung by someone Scottish, or so it sounded, with a very distinctive ( and accomplished ) frailed -banjo accompaniment. I am sure there was a line in a verse somewhere that went " It"ll be bricht both day and nicht " , there were several references to Peterhead ( not Aberdeen ) , and the name of the captain was different !!!
