SKYE BOAT SONG

arr. Stephen Smith

Home > Composers > STEPHEN SMITH > SKYE BOAT SONG

featuring Chor Leoni
A sweet and simple, yet satisfying, arrangement of the beloved Scottish song which recounts Bonnie Prince Charlie’s legendary escape to the Isle of Skye in 1746.

LYRICS

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,
Thunderclaps 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

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

chorus
