Leis O'Lurrighen   
by
Corny Held

On the ocean ohe
Waves in motion oho
Not but clouds could we see
Oer the blue sea below

Islay loomin ohe
In the gloamin oho
Our ships compass set we
And our lights we did show

Leis a Lurrighan ohe
Leis a Lurrighan oho
In the grey dark of evening
Oer the waves let us go

Aros passing ohe
Was harrassing oho
The proud billows to see
High as masthead to flow

Captain hollers ohe
To his fellows oho
Those that courage would flee
Let him go down below

Leis a Lurrighan ohe
Leis a Lurrighan oho
In the grey dark of evening
Oer the waves let us go

In the tempest ohe
Waves were crashing oho
And the cry of the sea
As the cold winds did blow

Captain hollers ohe
To his fellows oho
Those that wont stay with me
Let them go down below

Leis a Lurrighan ohe
Leis a Lurrighan oho
In the grey dark of evening
Oer the waves let us go
