I have a david Solley cassette, and not heard this song before

Lyrics

When I'm Old And Weary
And longing to die
Carry me back to the Isle Of Sky
Lay me to sleep --------------
They watch o'r Isle Of Sky

Far away in this isle of the west
Hold me there...

Tim Hyder was having trouble getting this to post:

Lyr Req: Island Requiem

When I'm old and weary
And longing to die
Carry me back to the isle of Skye
Lay me to sleep,

David Solley sang this, and only have 2 cassettes

http://chirb.it/DJFfzK - I not heard this song before and it's a traditional piece

When I'm old and weary
And longing to die
Carry me back to the isle of Skye
Lay me to sleep,
Where the small Coolins keep
Their watch o'er Isle Of Skye

Here's a quick transcription. I'm on my way out of the house in minutes, so I haven't time to check it now, so I might have made some mistakes. (I was typing directly into this post; normally I'd write in a file and check it before posting). I'll check it later if noone does it in the meantime.

ISLAND REQUIEM

When I'm old and weary and longing to die
Carry me back to the isle o' Skye.
Lay me to sleep where the tall Coolins keep
Their watch o'er Isle O' Skye.

Far away in this isle o' the West
Only there will my spirit find rest
Long did I live there and gladly I'll die
Far in the Isle O' Skye

Carry me slowly where lone seagulls fly
Home to the sheilin' and there let me lie
Lay me to sleep where the mist softly creep
Over the isle O skye

And where I'll go to the Isles Of the Blessed
Leaving the isle that I always love best
Peace will be with me, forever i'll rest
Far in the Isle O' Skye

I've had another listen and it looks ok, except for a couple of typos:

In l11: mist should be mists

In l13: where should be when.

Blessed is pronounced to rhyme with best

Carry me back to the Isle o' Skye.

  Only there will my spirit find rest
  Long did I live there and gladly I'll die
  Far in the Isle o' Skye

Carry me slowly where lone seagulls fly
Home to the sheilin' and there let me lie
Lay me to sleep where the mists softly creep
Over the Isle o' Skye

  And when I'll go to the Isles Of the Blessed
  Leaving the isle that I always love best
  Peace will be with me, forever I'll rest
  Far in the Isle o' Skye
