Outlander theme song: Skye Boat Song with Irish Bagpipes (Uilleann pipes) with Lyrics

The song tells how Bonnie Prince Charlie, disguised as a serving maid, escaped in a small boat after the defeat of his Jacobite rising of 1745, with the aid of Flora MacDonald. The song is a traditional expression of Jacobitism and its story has also entered Scotland as a national legend. (Wikipedia)

SKYE BOAT SONG LYRICS

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye

Mull was astem, Rum on the port,
Eigg on the starboard bow
Glory of youth shone in his soul
Where is that glory now?

Sing me a song of the lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone,
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lad that’s gone.

Sing me a song of the lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair
All that was me has gone.
