W: W:2 W:Come ye young Ramsay, hold fast the helm, W:The Long Ship is heavin' by Loch Scavaig Bay, W:Come wi' me lassie turn ye not hame, W:Come where the west wind is kind tae its ane. W: W:3 W:Pull hard my heroes the eagle tae flee, W:Doon by Loch Yuma the Tall Ship runs free, W:Flora was taken doon by Portree, W:Bound for the tower and maybe tae dee. % % % % % % % % %]
