Leis an Lurrighan
Traditional

On the ocean o´he
Waves in motion o´ho
Not but clouds could we see
O´er the blue sea below

Islay loomin´ o´he
In the gloamin´ o´ho
Our ship´s compass set we
And our lights we did show

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go

Aros passing o´he
Was harrassing 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 Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
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 stay with me
Let them go down below

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go
