    "The Skye Boat Song" is a Scottish folk song, which can be played as a waltz. After an unsuccessful Scottish uprising against the English in the 18th century, the Bonnie Prince Charlie, then still a child and the Stuart claimant to the Scottish throne, was sneaked across to the Isle of Skye, west of Scotland.

    I love this melody - the songsheets are the traditional version, but replace the lyrics with the words below and you're singing the Outlander theme song.

    Alternate 'Outlander' lyrics:

    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

    Billow and breeze, islands and seas
    Mountains of rain and sun
    All that was good, all that was fair
    All that was me is gone

    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
