Tiree Love Song

This is one of my favourite songs.





  • he-ree he-ro my bonnie wee girl.
    he-ree he-ro my fair one.
    Will you come away my love.
    To be my own my rare one.

  • Smiling the land, shining the sea.
    Sweet is the smell o' the heather.
    Would we were younger you and me.
    The two of us together.

    Chorus
    he-ree he-ro my bonnie wee girl.
    he-ree he-ro my fair one.
    Will you come away my love.
    To be my own my rare one.


  • All the day long, out on the peat.
    Then on the shore in the gloaming.
    Stepping it lightly with dancing feet.
    And then together roaming.

    Chorus

  • Laughter above, singing below.
    Tripping it lithsome and airy.
    Could we be asking of life for more.
    My own my darling Mary.






  • It's very Highlanderish, don't you think?
