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 Thunder clouds rend the air Baffled, our foe's stand on 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 leap, 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 Many's the lad fought on that day Well the claymore could wield When the night came, silently lay Dead on Culloden's field 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 Burned are our homes, exile and death Scatter the loyal men Yet, e'er the sword cool in the sheath Charlie will come again 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 (Contributed by Mel - June 2004)
