Outlander Theme Song Lyrics
If you're even more like us, you've been singing it wrong this whole time, like an idiot who thought "laspy eye" was a thing. Now, you don't have to sound like an idiot any longer, because we've got your first look at a handy dandy lyric video to go along with the tune, accompanied by scenes from season one including some unseen footage. I struggled to connect with the more famous lyrics by Sir Harold Boulton, however. Thankfully, vocalist Raya Yarbrough recalled another set of lyrics by Robert Louis Stevenson, which were much better suited to Claire's story. After we altered a few consonants to change the gender of the speaker, they connected even more directly.

The opening titles have caused quite the stir among Jamie Fraser fans - but what is it? The soaring melody perfectly ties in Scotland's dramatic history, bringing to mind a cornerstone of the Jacobite era - the tale of Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Sing me a song of a lass that is gone Say, could that lass be I? Merry of soul, she sailed on a day Over the sea to Skye. Mull was astern, Rum on the port Eigg on the starboard bow Glory of youth glowed in her soul Where is that glory now? Give me again all that was there Give me the sun that shone Give me the eyes, give me the soul Give me the lass that's gone. Compartilhar no Facebook Compartilhar no Twitter.

Alternative lyrics to the tune were written by Robert Louis Stevenson , probably in After hearing the Jacobite airs sung by a visitor he judged the words of this song to be "unworthy", so made a new set of verses "more in harmony with the plaintive tune". It is often played as a slow lullaby or waltz , and entered into the modern folk canon in the twentieth century with versions by Paul Robeson , Tom Jones , Rod Stewart , Roger Whittaker , Tori Amos , and many others. The text of the song gives an account of how Bonnie Prince Charlie, disguised as a serving maid, escaped in a small boat after the defeat of his Jacobite rising of , with the aid of Flora MacDonald. The song draws on the motifs of Jacobitism although it was composed nearly a century and a half after the episode it describes. The only time Charles was in Skye was when he left Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides to avoid the increasingly thorough Government searches.
