The Skye Boat Song

Chorus:
Speed bonnie boat like a bird on the wing
Onward the sailors cry
Carry the lad that's born to be king
Over the sea to Skye

Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar,
Thunderclouds rend the air
Baffled our foes, stand on the shore
Follow they will not dare

(Chorus)

Though the waves heave, soft will ye sleep
Ocean's a royal bed
Rocked in the deep, Flora will keep
Watch by your weary head

(Chorus)

Many's the lad fought on that day
Well the claymore couldwield
When the night came, silently lain
Dead on Culloden field

(Chorus)
