Thread Name: Origins: How many versions of Geordie
Subject: RE: How many versions of Geordie
I sang Geordie at a pub in Sligo, Ireland, in 1987. Everything was at it usually is, except in one verse:
My Geordie never stole a cow nor a calf,
He never murdered any,
But he stole sixteen of the King's royal deer,
And sold them in Kilkenny.
The reaction of the audience was exactly what I had hoped: "Damn that English judge!"
Anyway, I have no idea where Bohenny is. The closest I could find on a map of the UK was Bo'ness or something like that. At least I know where Kilkenny is.
Please add one more version to the tally!
