Mouth Music – Translation (the Son Of The Earl Of The) White Banners lyrics

I saw your longship on the sea
There was a helm of gold on her, and two silver masts
And shrowds of Galway silk
Rich red silk from Spain
It was not in Glasgow that it was (seen)
Nor in Dunvegan, small and lowly
Nor in Duntulm of the white banners !
From Colum Johnston (Barra), School of Scottish Studies recording.
- usually though of as a 'waulking song', the performance here is as it might have been on
Board
A ship.
