w:Sing me a song of~a lass that is gone, say could that lass be I?_

P:Verse
"Am"e>ce | e3 |"Dm" d>Ad | d3 |"Am" c>Ac |"F" c2c |"Am" A3 | A3 |
w:Bil-low and breeze, is-lands and seas, moun-tains of rain and sun_

w:All that was good, all that was fair, all that was me is gone_
W:1. Mull was astern, Rùm on the port,
W:Eigg on the starboard bow;
W:Glory of youth glowed in her soul;
W:Where is that glory now?
W:
W:2.Give me again all that was there,
W:Give me the sun that shone!
W:Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
W:Give me the lass that's gone!
W:
W:3. Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
W:Mountains of rain and sun,
W:All that was good, all that was fair,
W:All that was me is gone.
