The Skye Boat Song...is the basis for the Outlander theme song. Bear McCreary created new lyrics for Outlander... "Sing me a song of a lass who is gone Say could that lass be I? Merry of soul, she sailed on a day Over the sea to Skye."
Here’s a free sheet music for “The Skye Boat Song” that’s easy enough (for me) to play on the piano (I’m a novice piano player at best). Not Bear McCreary arrangement, obviously, but sounds good enough to me! :-) The download links to the PDF, MIDI, and MP3 files are in the left sidebar. Just thought I’d share.
"The Skye Boat Song" is a Scottish folk song, which can be played as a waltz, recalling the escape of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) from Uist to the Isle of Skye after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746.
