Skye Boat Song

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,
Thunder-clouds rend the air;
Baffled, our foes stand by the shore;
Follow, they will not dare.

Chorus

Though the waves leap, soft shall 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 could wield,
When the night came, silently lay,
Dead on Culloden’s field.

Chorus

Burned are our homes, exile and death,
Scatter the loyal men,
Yet ere the sword cool in the sheath,
Charlie will come again.

Chorus
