Subject: happy? – Feb 26 (Napoleon leaves Elba)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 26 Feb 06 - 09:50 AM

Napoleon leaves Elba on 2/26/1815
The "hundred days" begins

        Boney was a warrior
                Way-aay ah!
        A warrior, a tarrier
                John Francois!
        Boney went to Elba
                Way-aay ah!
        And Boney he came back again.
                John Francois!

                        "Boney was a Warrior," per Paul Clayton.

Hugill's version of the chantey is interesting - it's essentially a full ballad and that's relatively rare for chanties.
