[Gm]How high the gulls fly o'er [Eb]Islay.
|4/4 |2/4 | 4/4 | *
[Gm]How sad the farm lad deep in [F]play.
[Eb]Felt like a [F]grain on your [Gm]sand.
[Gm]How well the sheep's bell music [Eb]makes.
[Gm]Rovin' the cliff when fancy [F]takes.
[Eb]Felt like the [F]tide left me [Gm]here.
[Gm]How blest the forest with birds' [Eb]song.
[Gm]How neat the cut peat laid so [F]long.
[Eb]Felt like a [F]seed on your l[Gm]and.
