I's the B'y


My family comes from the far off land of Canada.  I tell you this so you have some inkling as to why my great uncle, Stanley Burke, sent to my father an old vinyl LP with traditional Newfoundland folk songs on it.  My father converted them to a digital format, and then he sent one along to me.  I was quite taken with the ditty, I's the B'y, and so tracked down the lyrics and chords.  I am now in the process of trying to learn them.  I thought it might be fun to share that process.  So here I am, still working on getting down all the chords and lyrics (this is the third take):

It's a fun tune, and I like that playing it somehow connects me to my family.
