The Loch Tay Boat Song
C Emi Ami1. When I’ve done the work of day F Dmi Emi Amiand I rowed my boat away F G Emi Amidown the waters of Loch Tay D Gwhen the evening light is falling C Emi Amithen I look toward Ben Lawers F Dmi Emi Amiwhere the after glories glow F G Emi Amiand I dream of two bright eyes Dmi G Cwith a merry mouth below F Dmi Emi Amishe’s my beauteous nighean ruadh F Dmi Emi Amishe’s my joy and sorrow too F Dmi Emi Amithough I own she is not true D Goh but I cannot live without her C Emi Amifor my heart’s a boat in tow F Dmi Emi Amiand I’d give the world to know F G Emi Amiif she means to let me go Dmi G Cas I sing hori horo. 2. Nighean ruadh I do declare there’s more beauty in your hair than all the tresses fair from Killin to Aberfeldy be they lint-white gold or brown be they blacker than the sloe they mean not as much to me as a melting flake of snow and her dance is like the gleam of the sunlight on the stream and the songs that we folk sing oh they’re the songs she sings at milking but my heart is full of woe for last night she bade me go and the tears begin to flow as I sing hori horo. 3.=1.
