OK, so this isn't a song I learned at camp, but it's one I want to bring to camp, but I don't remember all the verses. It's a slower song, called the Skye Boat Song. Here's what I remember:|
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,
Thunderclouds rend the air
Baffled our foes stand by the shore,
Follow they wiill not dare.
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.
Many's the lad fought on that day
well the claymore could wield
When the night came, silently lay
Dead on Culloden's Field.
Then here's where I get sketchy...
Mull was astern, Rum on the port, Eig on the starboad side
....? I don't remember the rest of this verse.
also there are a couple other lines that I don't remember where they fit in...
"Charlie will come again..."
"Glory of old, shone all around,
Where is that glory now?"
and something about men remaining faithful maybe? I don't remember the end verses. Can anyone help me out?
