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
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
As the wind blows on the hillside And the waves mount ever higher Anctious eyes turn ever seaward See us home boys to mingulay
Extended Keywords: 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. Anthem feed the world Victorious Majestic Majesty Threatening, dark and menacing. Action, adventure, fantasy. Heroic, patriotic and glorious. A very dramatic and powerful rock version but gives more meaning to the lyrics than any we have heard before. This will move you! 5 musicians: Andy John Bradley (Ireland) Vocals and 12 string accoustic guitar Colin Tench (Sweden) Electric guitars Marco Chiappini (Italy) Keyboards Stef Flaming (Belgium) Bass Guitar Victor Tassone (New York) Drums and percussion came together to produce this drama. No computers were used to harm the music! This is a ship of hope. A determined crew. A great and compassionate Leader. This is terrific!
