The Skye Boat Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now if you load your rifle right
And if you fix your bayonet so
And if you kill that man, my friend
The one we call the foe
Verse 2
And if you do it often lad
And if you do it right
You'll be a hero overnight
You'll save your country from her plight
Verse 3
Remember God is always right
If you survive to see the sight
A friend now greeting foe
No, you won't believe in it anymore
Verse 4
It's an illusion, it's an illusion
No you won't believe in it anymore
It is for children, it is for children
Building daydreams
Verse 5
If I knew then what I know now
(I thought I did you know somehow)
If I could have the time again
I'd take the sunshine leave the rain
If only time would trickle slow
Verse 6
Like rain that melts the fallen snow
If only Lord if only
If only lord if only
Oh, I don't believe in it anymore
Verse 7
It's an illusion, it's an illusion
No, I don't believe in it anymore
It is for children, it is for children
Building daydreams
Verse 8
No, I don't believe in it anymore
Verse 9
It's an illusion, it's an illusion
No, I don't believe in it anymore
It is for children, it is for children
Building daydreams
Verse 10
