Subject: Lyr Add: QUEEN OF SKYE (from Red Clay Ramblers)
From: Stewie
Date: 15 Sep 02 - 10:46 PM

Here is how I hear it:

QUEEN OF SKYE
(Jack Herrick)

It's haul her up, boys, and away she sails
Off to seek a fortune
With the sky in her bow and the wind in her sail
Bound for Carolina

Hush little baby don't you cry
Gone, gone away
We'll sail through the air on the Queen of Skye
Bound for Carolina

When the Queen of Skye stood in Glasgow town
Off to seek a fortune
Those ragged boys they fit her down
Gone, gone away

Kegs of dried-up salty beef
And biscuits shaped like boulders
An old one-legged parakeet
They carried on their shoulders

Hush little baby don't you cry
Gone, gone away
We'll sail through the air on the Queen of Skye
Bound for Carolina

For twenty-one days we sailed the main
Off to seek a fortune
Till we got swept up by a hurricane
Bound for Carolina

We rode those billows low and high
The passengers were wailin'
Then a great strong gust threw us up in the sky
Above the storm clouds sailin'

Hush little baby don't you cry
Gone, gone away
We'll sail through the air on the Queen of Skye
Bound for Carolina

Then the captain cried, 'Clap on more sail'
Off to seek a fortune
When we got caught up in a comet's tail
Bound for Carolina

We rode that comet round the moon
The passengers delighted
Then the first mate bellowed: 'There she be'
And America was sighted

Hush little baby don't you cry
Gone, gone away
We'll sail through the air on the Queen of Skye
Hush little baby don't you cry
Gone, gone away
We'll sail through the air on the Queen of Skye
Bound for Carolina

Thanks, Stewie.

rich r that's awful kind of you, but you musn't spend your time so. I have the CD without liner notes and was hoping to avoid transcribing before I leave on vacation Sat. But I can do so. You are very kind to offer. Cheers, Chance

Chance, unfortunately, I do not have the lyrics. All I can tell you about the song is that it was on their 'Rambler' CD on Sugar Hill and written by Jack Herrick, one of the group. There is a Ramblers website, but it is of little use to you in this instance.

Red Clay Ramblers
