Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Kishmul's Galley


1. High on the Barra quay
On the day of days seawards I gaze
Watching Kishmul's galley sailing
Ah-hee ya-hoo fol-you-oh

2. Bravely homewards they battled
Through ragin' seas
No more no rope
Anchor cable or tackle has he
Ah-hee ya-hoo fol-you-oh

3. Then at last 'gainst wind and tide
He's brought her to
'Neath Kishmul's castle walls
Kishmul castle o' ancient glory
Ah-hee ya-hoo fol-you-oh

4. Here's red wine
And feast for heroes
And harping too
And sweet sweet harping too
Ah-hee ya-hoo fol-you-oh

If you ever go to Barra, in Castlebay, Kishmul's Castle stand's out in the sea. Hence why they lyrics are "High on the Barra quay"
