Botany Bay Sheet Music for the tin whistle
And the banjo. A traditional song. Recorded by The Clancy Brothers, The Wolfe Tones and recently by Nathan Carter. And here's the link to Botany Bay Lyrics And Chords. I used a D whistle while working this one out. It was the Wolfe Tones group who introduced this old folk song to the world in the early 70's. There's a heap of different versions of this song that use this tune and other songs that have the same name but use a completely different score. The version here, nobody knows for sure who wrote the words or music and therefore is regarded as a ''Traditional'' song. The website Wikipedia regard the version by The Wolfe Tones as a ''Political'' song from their album Irish To The Core. But there are no political views expressed in the song at all, in fact the song is about a fella who is going to jack in his job on a building site and go search his fortune on the other side of world.
