The Skye Boat Song This is the original Scottish folk song. The lyrics tell the story of "bonnie" Prince Charles escaping to the Isle of Skye after he was defeated in the battle of Culloden in 1746. We don't know who wrote it, so it is a true folk song. It is often sung as a lullaby.
Over the Sea to Skye Here is a poem variation written by the Scottish poet, Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894). One verse was left out of our song. Why do you think the composer left out that verse?
