Mingulay Boat Song Lyrics

Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
Heave her head round into the weather
Heel y'ho boys, let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!

What care we how white the Minch is
What care we for wind and weather?
Heel y'ho boys, every inch is
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!

Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
Heave her head round into the weather
Heel y'ho boys, let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!

Set your eyes on a sun horizon
Gulls and doves fill the sky with feathers
Cut her loose boy, the horizon
We'll be home soon in Mingulay!

Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
Heave her head round into the weather
Heel y'ho boys, let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!

Wives are waiting on the bank, boys
Looking seaward from o'er the heather.
Turn her 'round boys, and we'll anchor
'Ere the sun sets on Mingulay!

Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
Heave her head round into the weather
Heel y'ho boys, let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!

Ships return now, heavy laden,
Mothers holdin' their bairns a-cryin',
They'll return yet, as the sun sets,
They'll return back to Mingulay.

Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
Heave her head round into the weather
Heel y'ho boys, let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!

Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
Heave her head round into the weather
Heel y'ho boys, let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!

Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
Heave her head round into the weather
Heel y'ho boys, let her go boys
Sailing homeward to Mingulay!
