The Skye Boat Song Lyrics

 

The Skye Boat Song - The Beverley Sisters/Carmen McRae

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 wind howls

Loud the waves roar

Thunderclaps rend the air

 

Baffled our foes

Stand by the shore

Follow they will not dare

 

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

 

Though the waves heave

Soft shall ye sleep

 

Ocean's a royal bed

 

Rocked in the deep

Flora will keep

Watch by your weary head

 

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

Over the sea to Skye
