Mingulay Boat Song

Heel y’ho boys, let her go, boys

Heave her head round now all together

Heel y’ho boys, let her go boys

Sailing homeward to Mingulay

What care we tho’ white the Minch is

What care we for wind and weather?

Let her go boys, every inch is

Wearing homeward to Mingulay!

Wives are waiting on the bank, boys,

Looking seaward from the heather.

Pull her ’round boys, and we’ll anchor

‘Ere the sun sets at Mingulay!
