Thread Name: Lyr req: Kishmul's Galley
Subject: Lyr Add: KISHMUL'S GALLEY^^
I have delved deep into my (now failing) memory and have come up with the following fragments. I only ever learned the song orally so the spelling is phonetic.

Please feel free to correct or fill in the blanks in:
KISHMUL'S GALLEY

High upon the barenock heeya
On the day of days,
Seawards I gaze
Watching Kishmul's galley sailing
A hee ya ho fol-you-oh

(Missing line or 2)
No more no rope
Anchor cable or tackle has he
A hee ya ho fol-you-oh

Then at last 'gainst wind and tide
he's brought her to
Kishmul's castle walls
Kishmul castle of ancient glory
A hee ya ho fol-you-oh

There's red wine
And feast for heroes
And appin too
And sweet sweet appin too
A hee ya ho fol-you-oh
