The Mingulay Boat Song (Trad)

Heel y’ho boys let her go boys
Bring her head round now all to together
Heel y’ho boys and we’ll anchor
As the sunsets on Mingulay

Wives are waiting by the harbour
They’ve been waiting since break of day boys
they’ve been waiting for their loved one’s
sailing homeward to Mingulay

What care we for white the Minch is
What care we for the windy or the weather
Turn her head round every inch is
Sailing homeward to Mingulay
