Dougie MacLean - Leis A Lurighan lyrics

On the ocean o'he
Waves in motion o'ho
Not but clouds could we see
O'er 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

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

Aros passing o'he
Was harassing 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 him go down below

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

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

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