The Loch Tay Boat Song

Asonance



             C                Emi Ami
1. When I’ve done the work of day 
      F        Dmi  Emi  Ami
and I rowed my boat away 
         F      G       Emi Ami
down the waters of Loch Tay 
         D                G        
when the evening light is falling
       C               Emi   Ami
then I look toward Ben Lawers
          F     Dmi     Emi  Ami
where the after glories glow 
      F        G          Emi  Ami
and I dream of two bright eyes 
       Dmi   G       C    
with a merry mouth below
         F         Dmi     EmiAmi 
she’s my beauteous nighean ruadh
         F       Dmi    Emi Ami
she’s my joy and sorrow too 
         F       Dmi    Emi  Ami
though I own she is not true 
         D              G         
oh but I cannot live without her
       C                 Emi Ami
for my heart’s a boat in tow 
        F        Dmi      Emi  Ami
and I’d give the world to know 
       F        G      EmiAmi
if she means to let me go 
     Dmi    G    C    
as 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.
