Westering Home
Traditional

Chorus:
Westering home with a song in the air
Light of me eye and it’s goodbye to care
Laughter and love are a welcoming there
Pride of my heart my own love

Tell me a tale of the orient gay
Tell me of riches that come from Cathay
Ah but it’s grand to be waken at day
And find oneself nearer to Islay

Chorus

Where are the folks like the folks of the west
Canty and couthy and kindly, our best
There I would hie me and there I would rest
At home with my own folks in Islay

Chorus

Now I’m at home and at home I do lay,
Dreaming of riches that come from Cathay.
I’ll Hop a good ship and be on my way
and bring back my fortune to Islay

Chorus

Rolling along on the grey Irish sea,
Island to windward and out on a spree
Up on the foredeck that’s where I will be
Awaiting my first glimps of Isla and it’s

Chorus
