Theres a sea shanty performed by Paul Clayton called “Bonnie was a Warrior” about Napoleon Bonaparte. I was planning on using this song in a history lesson, and was wondering if anyone knew about its origin.

Hi - I think the usual spelling of the song's title is "Boney Was a Warrior." I'm going to direct you over to our existing thread on the song (click) and close this thread.
I've had a lot of fun singing this song with Dick Holdstock.
