Long Description: The Mingulay Boatsong By Andy John Bradford & Oceans 5 Mix2, Folk Music, Folk Pop, flash music loops, websites music and independent music

Keywords: This was: A sea shanty supposed to have been sung by Scottish fishermen as they returned from the Atlantic towards the Isle of Mingulay. However, the Isle of Mingulay was abandoned in 1912, and therefore the song cannot be authentic to the isle's fishing community. It now is: A very dramatic and powerful rock version but gives more meaning to the lyrics than any we have heard before. This will move you! This is a ship of hope. A determined crew. A great and compassionate Leader. This is terrific!

Lyrics:
Chorus:
        Heel y'ho boys, let her go, boys
        Bring her head round and all together
        Heel y'ho boys and let her go boys
        Sailing homeward to Mingulay!



    What care we for wide the Minch is
    What care we for wind or weather
    Bring her head round every inch is
    Sailing home to mingulay

        Chorus

    Wives and sweethearts on the hillside
    Looking seaward through the heather
    Oh let her go boy and whey the anchor
    Aire the sunsets on Mingulay

        Chorus

    As the wind blows on the hillside
    And the waves mount ever higher
    Anctious eyes turn ever seaward
    See us home boys to mingulay

       Chorus
