Leis A Lurighan

  • (Trad)

            Leis a lurighan o'he
            Leis a lurighan o'ho
            In the grey dark of evening
            O'er the waves let us go

    On the ocean o'he waves in motion o'ho
    Not but clouds could we see on the blue sea below
    Islay looming o'he in the gloaming o'ho
    Our ship's compass set we and our lights we did show

    Aros passing o'he was harrassing o'ho
    The proud billows to see high as masthead to flow
    Captain hollers o'he to his fellows o'ho
    Those that courage would flee let them go down below

    In the tempest o'he waves were crashing o'ho
    And the cry of the sea as the cold winds did blow
    Captain hollers o'he to his fellows o'ho
    Those that won't stand with me let them go down below

    (as sung by Dougie MacLean)
