C             Am            Dm7         G7    Em C        Am      C    G7
Speed, bonnie boat , like a bird on the wing, onward, the sailors cry.
C         Am         Dm7        G7    C        F      C
Carry the lad that`s born to be King, over the sea to Skye.

V 1
Am                      Dm                   Am        F     Am
Through the waves leap, soft shall ye sleep, ocean`s a royal bed.
Am                  Dm              Am            F     Am     G7
Rocked in the deep, Flora will keep watch by your weary head.

Speed, bonnie boat , like a bird on the wing, onward, the sailors cry.
C         Am         Dm7        G7    C        F      C
Carry the lad that`s born to be King, over the sea to Skye.

V 2 
Am              Dm                  Am           F          Am
Many`s the lad, fought on that day, well the claymore could wield.
Am                   Dm            Am          F       Am     G#7
When the night came, silently lay, dead on Culloden`s field.

Chorus (+ 1 Semitone)

A#m                   D#m              A#m         F#    A#m
Burned are our homes, exile and death, scatter the loyal men.

Yet, o`er the sword, cool in the sheath, Charlie will come again.

C#        A#m        D#m7       G#7   C#       F#     C#      
Carry the lad that`s born to be King, over the sea to Skye.    (Slowing)
