"My Bonnie lies over the ocean" is a traditional Scottish song. It is believed by many that the subject of the song was Charles Edward Stuart ('Bonnie Prince Charlie'). He returned to Scotland to fight for his crown, but after the English defeated his army at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 he was exiled to France. His supporters, known as Jacobites, might have sung the song in his honour. Thanks to the ambiguity of the term "bonnie", which can refer to a man or woman, they could pretend it was a love song if the English became suspicious upon hearing their singing.

According to Theodore Raph in his 1964 book " The American song treasury : 100 favorites", people were requesting the song at sheet music stores in the 1870s; convinced that there was a business oppurtunity Charles E. Pratt published the sheet music (1881) for the song under the pseudonyms H.J. Fulmer and J.T. Wood. This title "Bring Back My Bonnie to Me" subsequently became popular especially with college singing groups.

This is a free sheet music for voice.

Les accords me manquent. Je ne suis pas experte en piano et j'aurai peut-être (sûrement) un peu de mal à les trouver toute seule. La main droite, j'aurais pu la trouver sans problème en suivant l'air que jai bien en tête, les paroles aussi.J'avais appris cette chanson en classe et j'ai 70 ans. Merci de votre aide !
